CASE ENTRY

Carroll v. E One Inc.

Plaintiffs’ counsel dismisses lawsuit alleging that a manufacturer’s fire sirens caused hearing damage after discovery reveals that all of the plaintiffs are time barred (oops!) and one of them didn’t suffer any damage from the sirens in the first place (double oops!). Third Circuit: Counsel’s lackadaisical approach to factual investigation before filing this lawsuit (which is one of more than 1,000 they have filed since 2011) warrants an award of attorneys’ fees.
