Alea v. Wilson Sporting Goods Co., Civil Action No. 1:17-cv-00498 (U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois).
This consumer class action alleges that certain baseball bats manufactured and distributed by Wilson Sporting Goods Co., under the Louisville Slugger brand name were falsely advertised and suffer from a defect. The bats at issue possess a special connection system designed to reduce sting for hitters. Plaintiffs allege that the system does not function as intended and that significant movement develops between the handle and the barrel of the bats, causing, among other things, the handles and barrels of the bats to twist independently of one another.
