AmeriGas Pre-Filled Propane Tank Class Action Settlement

Stueve Siegel Hanson was settlement class counsel in a nationwide class action lawsuit that alleged that AmeriGas, together with certain competitors, reduced the amount of propane gas in cylinders sold to customers. The plaintiffs claimed that AmeriGas did not fill cylinders to the proper level and failed to disclose the actual net weight or level of propane in the cylinders to customers. The reduced volume was not visible from an examination of the cylinder. The lawsuit sought to recover the money that AmeriGas customers may have been overcharged due to AmeriGas's alleged conduct.

On November 5, 2010, the court granted final approval of a $10 million settlement in the case against Amerigas.
