Civil Practice – Federal Jurisdiction – Removal — Class Action – Amount in Controversy – Fiber Cement Siding (access required)

Hardig v. Certainteed Corp. Even if the plaintiff class were limited to the 501 homes in the Fieldstone Farms subdivision in Indian Trail, the materials alone for replacing the allegedly defective siding would cost $4,000 per home, and plaintiffs seek treble damages under the N.C. Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act; therefore, the amount in controversy for the materials alone exceeds $6 million.
