Supreme Court rules for Whirlpool
A Supreme Court ruling came down on the side of Whirlpool, as the highest court sent a class-action case back to appeals court for reconsideration.
At issue was the class-action status of the case brought against the appliance maker.
The Supreme Court's ruling, which came down Monday, was related to another class-action ruling that dealt with a case involving a class-action suit filed against Comcast.
In Whirlpool's case, a class-action lawsuit was organized on the behalf of consumers who claimed the products emitted unpleasant odors.
