The case against BMW by owners alleging their vehicles suffered water damage after the drainage tubes installed to pull water away from the sunroofs did not properly work has been dismissed by judge Maxine Chesney; however, plaintiffs have until July 3, 2014 to file a third-amended complaint that corrects the claim “deficiencies” found by the court.
A judge for the U.S. Northern District Court of California ruled that plaintiffs Monita Sharma and Eric Anderson “have failed to establish their standing to seek injunctive relief,” which would have required BMW to notify owners of the alleged sunroof defect and offer repairs at no cost. The judge also granted the plaintiffs the opportunity to file a second-amended complaint to strengthen their case.
Responding to two motions from BMW, a judge for the U.S. Northern District Court of California ruled that plaintiffs Monita Sharma and Eric Anderson have made allegations “sufficient” to represent a class action at the pleading stage of their case against the automaker over an alleged sunroof defect. However, the judge directed the plaintiffs to show cause as to why their motion for injunctive relief should not be dismissed for lack of standing.
