MEDIA — State Farm is suing The Home Depot, General Electric Co. and others, citing alleged breach of warranties.
State Farm Fire and Casualty Co., a/s/o Barbara Ann Plick and Bod Plick, filed a complaint on Dec. 18 in the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas against the defendants, alleging they breached their duty to sell and install products that were safe for their intended use.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Jan. 19, 2017, its insured property located at 1013 Brick House Farm Lane in Newton Square and owned by Barbara and Bod Plick was damaged due to a water leak from the steam dryer kit installed on a GE washing machine.
Plaintiff was obligated to pay its insured pursuant to the insurance contract. The plaintiff says the defendants failed to properly install the steam dryer kit to the washing machine and failed to give adequate warning of the improper installation.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants, jointly and severally in an amount to be determined at trial, with interest and costs. It is represented by Douglas Aaron of Aaron & Prince in Philadelphia.
