U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio Dismisses Certain Claims Arising Out of Target's Sale and Marketing of Brand of Pre-Moistened Wipe Products

The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio dismissed certain claims arising out of Target's sale and marketing of a brand of pre-moistened wipe products, finding that such claims were abrogated by the Ohio Product Liability Act. Remaining claims, except one for negligent misrepresentation, fell outside the purview of the statute and were plausibly pleaded. Meta filed a class action lawsuit against Target Corp. Target moved to dismiss, arguing that Meta's breach of warranty, negligent design, negligent failure to warn, negligent misrepresentation and fraud claims were abrogated by the Ohio Product Liability Act (OPLA). Meta asserted that his claims fell under a narrow exception to abrogation because he was not in privity with the manufacturer and he sought economic damages. According to Meta, his damages consisted of the difference between the value of the wipes advertised and the defective product he received. The district court found that Meta could not carve out a common law product liability claim for economic loss only. The alleged defect in the wipes did not damage the wipes themselves. The alleged injury was the clogging of Meta's septic system. The breach of warranty, negligent design and negligent failure to warn claims were barred by the OPLA. The negligent misrepresentation claim, assuming that it was not a product liability claim, still failed. The district court reasoned that the cause of action is not available in a simple consumer transaction. The district court concluded that common law fraud claim was outside the purview of the OPLA. Meta alleged with the requisite particularity that the defendants knew the wipes were not flushable or safe for septic or sewer systems but made affirmative misrepresentations otherwise. Target argued that dismissal of the defective design and product defect claims was proper because Meta alleged property damage and economic damages while other class members alleged only economic damages. The district court determined that the argument was more appropriately raised on a motion for summary judgment or class certification. The unjust enrichment claim withstood the motion to dismiss. The claim was not duplicative of the fraud claim. The district court noted that the complaint alleged Target was unjustly enriched because it wrongfully profited from the sale of defective wipes. The district court granted in part and denied in part Target's motion to dismiss. Meta could proceed with his fraud, defective design, product defect, breach of implied warranty of merchantability, Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and unjust enrichment claims.
