Bursor & Fisher Appointed Interim Class Counsel In Welspun Egyptian Cotton Litigation
On January 27, 2017, Judge Richard J. Sullivan of the Southern District of New York appointed Bursor & Fisher, P.A. as interim class counsel in In re Welspun Litigation, a nationwide consumer class action against Welspun. The lawsuit alleges that Welspun falsely represented its linen products as “100% Egyptian Cotton,” when in fact these products are not made from 100% Egyptian Cotton.
Judge Sullivan appointed Bursor & Fisher as the sole interim class counsel, rejecting a competing application from a coalition of four law firms. Judge Sullivan found that Bursor & Fisher “would better represent Plaintiffs’ interests due to the waste and inefficiency likely to result from .. [a] convoluted multi-firm structure.”
“We are pleased that Judge Sullivan recognized our firm was better able to represent this class than the several other competing law firms, and we look forward to working hard to get justice for the class members who purchased these mislabeled ‘Egyptian Cotton’ products,” said Scott A. Bursor, one of the firm’s partners handling the matter.
