If You purchased Chinese-made laminate flooring (“Subject Products”) sold by Eternity Flooring between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2016, You May Qualify to Receive Benefits from a Class Action Settlement

A Superior Court authorized this notice. This is not a solicitation.

  • A proposed Settlement has been reached in two class action lawsuits involving Subject Products sold by Eternity Flooring between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2016 (please see question 5 below). This settlement does not constitute an admission of liability by the Company of any fault or liability. The parties have agreed to settle these matters to avoid the expense and uncertainty of litigation.
  • You may be included in one of two Settlement subclasses if you are a purchaser of Subject Products and submit a Claim Form as explained below.
  • The Settlement will provide eligible class members all or some of their purchase price back in cash or a voucher which can be used at Eternity Flooring. The total value of the Settlement is $2,000,000, consisting of $1,000,000 in cash and up to $1,000,000 in vouchers. In addition to repaying class members, the cash portion will be used to pay attorneys’ fees, costs, expenses and incentive awards to class representatives who were involved in litigating the lawsuits, and the costs to administer the settlement.


This is the only way to receive benefits under the Settlement. You may submit a claim form online at A downloadable version is also available on the website. Claims must be submitted no later than April 16, 2020.


If you opt out or exclude yourself, you will not receive any benefits from the Settlement, but you will keep any rights you currently have to separately sue the Defendant for the claims that are the subject of this lawsuit. The deadline to exclude yourself is April 16, 2020. See question 16 for the requirements to exclude yourself.


You may write to the Court and all counsel explaining why you object to the Settlement. Any objection must be filed with the Court no later than April 16, 2020. See questions 15 and 16 below for additional requirements.


If you do not exclude yourself, you may ask to speak in Court about the Settlement. The Final Approval Hearing is scheduled for October 8, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. You must file an objection to speak at the hearing.


If you do nothing, you will not receive benefits from the Settlement and you will give up any rights you currently have as specified in the Settlement Agreement to separately sue the Defendant for the claims being resolved by the Settlement.

Your rights and options – and the deadlines to exercise them – are explained in this Notice.
