Mass. MDL Over Car Seat Safety Expands With Calif. Suit

Law360 (June 17, 2020, 3:02 PM EDT) -- A California suit was added Wednesday to a newly consolidated Massachusetts multidistrict case claiming Evenflo Co. Inc. falsely advertised its car seats as safe for children under 40 pounds, allegedly placing kids in "grave danger" in the event of a crash.

The transferred suit landed on the docket of U.S. District Judge Denise J. Casper the same day the judge's order governing the MDL was publicly filed.
