The lawsuit claims that Interline’s actions led to damage resulting from the failure of the Coupling Nuts on the DuraPro™ Toilet Connectors. The lawsuit asks for money to be paid to people and entities that possess DuraPro™ Toilet Connectors with plastic Coupling Nuts but need to replace them due to their alleged defects, and to people and entities that suffered and/or paid to repair property damage as a result of the failure of a Coupling Nut on a DuraPro™ Toilet Connector.
