Federal Pacific Electric Company Class Action Lawsuit

I just wanted to bring this to the attention of anyone living in New Jersey who has circuit breakers from the Federal Pacific Electric Company. You may be entitled to damages, including three times the cost of replacement of Federal Pacific Electric Company (FPE) circuit breakers which do not comply with UL standards.
The Superior Court of New Jersey, Law Division, Middlesex County, Docket# L-2904-97 has determined that FPE violated the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act, by reason of cheating during the Underwriter's Laboratory certification process when FPE Stab-Lok circuit breakers were manufactured in the 1965 -1980 time period.
The homeowner must be the owner at the time that FPE Stab-Lok circuit breakers were manufactured and sold between June 29, 1971 and July 1, 1980 and were installed as original equipment or as part of renovations.
Look at the outside of the electrical panel or inside of the door cover. It must say Federal Pacific Electric Company. If it says Federal Pacific Equipment Inc. then you are not eligible to be included in the class action.
DO NOT REMOVE any of the circuit breakers. If you feel that you qualify to participate in the class action, you must register by April 20, 2005. You can do so at http://www.yacoutclassaction.com
The attorneys in this matter are Chase Kurshan Herzfeld & Rubin, LLC, 5N Regent Street, Suite 508, Livingston, NJ 07039-1617. Attention Lisa Santana. Tel.973-535-8840. Email snipped-for-privacy@chaselawnj.com
If you don't respond by April 20, 2005 you will lose all chance of getting in on this lawsuit.
You must be the original property owner during the time of installation and continue to own it today to qualify. This is for New Jersey residents only.
I hope some of you are able to get something out of this. I have been passing this information on to my eligible customers.
