A settlement has now been approved in a class action lawsuit filed in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice with respect to certain models of Simplex® or Unican™ mechanical pushbutton locks. The Plaintiffs claimed that the Simplex® or Unican™ locks were improperly designed and marketed. The Defendants have denied all claims and continue to deny the Plaintiff’s allegations and maintain that the Defendants have not engaged in any wrongful acts. The Settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing or an indication that any law was violated. The Defendants have nevertheless concluded that it is in their best interests that this lawsuit be resolved subject to and on the terms and conditions set forth herein.
