Robbins Geller Defeats Kimberly-Clark and Costco’s Attempt to Dismiss the Case for the False and Misleading Labeling of ‘Flushable’ Wipes
On November 14, 2014, the Honorable Jack B. Weinstein of the Eastern District of New York, denied defendants’ motions to dismiss and ordered that the case against Kimberly-Clark and Costco move forward with discovery.
The complaint alleges that defendants manufactured and marketed products as flushable and safe for plumbing systems when, in fact, they are not. As a result of defendants’ practices, homeowners and consumers incurred damage.
Robbins Geller will continue to aggressively represent the injured class as the case progresses.
