The Cookware Co. is seeking to dismiss a proposed class action suit filed by a customer who was unhappy with her purchase of frying pan manufactured by the company, according to Legal Newsline. The plaintiff claims that the product, the Blue Diamond Enhanced Ceramic Non-Stick Pan, was not, in fact, nonstick and that the pan did not deliver on its advertised function. The Cookware Co., represented by Hodgson Russ, says that it clearly offered a warranty that would have allowed the plaintiff to seek free repair or replacement of the pan, but the plaintiff never sought to take advantage of the warranty.
Poyner Spruill announced that it successfully represented a Jehovah’s Witnesses inmate in a case centered on the inmate’s ability to worship in prison. The firm represented the inmate pro bono in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina, arguing that a state policy, which classified Jehovah’s Witnesses as a subset of Christian Protestants and did not allow Jehovah’s Witnesses to have separate religious meetings, restricted religious freedom and violated the First Amendment. The court ultimately granted Jehovah’s Witnesses recognition as a distinct group and gave inmates who practice the religion permission to schedule their own religious services.
