Omega Flex recently announced that a U.S. District Court in Florida has dismissed a class action lawsuit falsely alleging that Omega Flex’s corrugated stainless-steel tubing product was defective and created a risk of fire damage due to lightning strikes. The lawsuit was filed despite the fact the CSST systems were properly working at all times and the homes had not suffered any type of damage. 

In granting Omega Flex’s motion to dismiss the lawsuit, Philip Hall and Deborah Haase v. Omega Flex, Inc., the court found absolutely no basis for the plaintiffs’ claim and took the unusual step of barring the trial attorneys from amending and resubmitting the lawsuit. Another putative class action case filed against OmegaFlex in Ohio and making the exact same allegations was voluntarily dismissed by plaintiffs a week prior to the Florida decision.
