SEATTLE, Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- A King County, Washington Superior Court judge has certified for class action treatment a lawsuit concerning Stimson Lumber Corporation's (Forestex) Hardboard Siding, a composite wood siding product.
The lawsuit alleges that Stimson committed unfair and deceptive practices in the marketing of Forestex siding, including failure to disclose concerns regarding its performance and reliability. Trial is set for August,
