Sixth Circuit Holds that Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act Does Not Apply to Manufactured Homes
Yesterday, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals held that the purchaser of a manufactured home could not bring a warranty claim under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act on the basis that the Act provides protection with respect to “consumer products,” and a manufactured home is not a consumer product. Bennett v. CMH Homes, Inc., Nos. 13-5423/5560, ____ WL ____ (Oct. 30, 2014).
