April 2014: A class-action lawsuit against Tristar Products, Inc. was removed to federal court. The complaint, which was originally filed in state court in January 2014, alleges that the company falsely advertises the Flex-Able Hose. Among other things, plaintiffs claim that the company represents that the garden hose is “designed like a fire-hose for speed, storage and strength, to last a really long time” when the thin elastic-like hose is actually prone to leaks. (Burns et al v. Tristar Products, Inc. and Does 1-50, Case No. 14-cv-00749, S. D. CA.).
