"Cat Slapped with Another Class Action Suit for ACERT Defects," Trucking Info
October 10, 2014
Another lawsuit has been brought against Caterpillar for alleged problems with its 2007-09 C13 and C15 diesels. This suit, a class action complaint filed by Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC, represents 22 trucking and transportation firms and individuals in 18 states that had purchased or leased vehicles powered by the Cat engines.
This is at least the 16th suit filed against Caterpillar over problems with the engines. Motor carriers, bus lines and at least one boat operator are represented in previously filed lawsuits in various jurisdictions. A Caterpillar spokesperson declined to comment because the suit is pending.
