Morgan & Morgan has filed consumer class actions against Lumber Liquidators in Florida, Louisiana and California. More than 50 similar cases have been filed across the country. Because there are so many similar cases, the plaintiffs in several of the cases are asking the court to centralize the cases and handle them all together. This practice, which is known as multi-district litigation, is common when there are a large number of cases against the same defendant involving the same issues. Whether the cases against Lumber Liquidators are centralized and handled together will be decided by the court.
