Andrew Hecht-Nielsen, et al. v. Lifetime Products Inc., et al., and Saman Afrouznia, et al. v. Lifetime Products Inc., et al., Case No. 37-2011-00089380-CU-BT-CTL in the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of San Diego.
The Lifetime basketball settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit that alleges the defendants misrepresented the country of origin of various Lifetime basketball products by claiming that the products were made in the United States when they actually contained Chinese made component parts. The plaintiffs claim that this alleged misrepresentation was prohibited by statute.
Defendants deny the allegations but have entered into a class action settlement agreement to resolve the litigation.
UPDATE: The Settlement Administrator website now allows Class Members to submit their Claim Forms online. The option to print out a paper Claim Form and mail it in is still available.
