STIMSON LUMBER: WA Forestex Settlement Notification Initiated A Court-ordered notification has been initiated in order to inform property owners in the western United States about a proposed settlement of a class action lawsuit about Forestex hardboard siding manufactured by Stimson Lumber Company (titled Gardner v. Stimson Lumber Company, No. 00-2-17633-3SEA). The settlement is being overseen by Judge Mary I. Yu of the Superior Court of Washington, in and for King County. The settlement includes all those who have owned or own property on which Forestex siding has been incorporated or installed in the states of Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Utah, Colorado, and Hawaii since January 1, 1985. The settlement will pay all qualified claims for specific kinds of siding damage, including certain thickness swelling, edge checking, buckling, warping, softness, wax bleed, delamination, and welting. Notices are scheduled to appear in newspaper supplements and regional editions of magazines, as well as mailed to those with known addresses, leading up to a court hearing on November 12, 2004, when the Court will consider whether to approve the settlement. Those affected by the settlement can object to any part of it by November 5, 2004. Later, more notices will appear on TV telling those included how they may get claim forms. Forestex hardboard siding - made to look like conventional wood siding - was made until 1997 from wood fiber, wax, and resins, in both lap (board) and panel (sheet) styles. Forestex siding has a stamp on the back with the number AHA 05. After the settlement is approved, a claims process will begin and claim forms will be issued to those who request them now. Payment amounts will be determined by a formula that takes into account siding damage in relation to wall size, siding square footage, the age of the siding, and whether it was properly installed. Payments will vary but could provide money to replace some or all of the siding on a wall or an entire home. For more details, contact Forestex Claims by Mail: P.O. Box 1371, Minneapolis, MN 55440-1371
