Hot Shot Bug Bomb Is Sued As Scam in SDNY Claims Survived So Mediation Choice Jan 15

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 8 – The Hot Shot bug bomb claims that it "kills hidden bugs and penetrates into crevices, cracks and carpet fibers." But some consumers say Hot Shot is a scam, and have sued.     

 On October 8 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Jesse M. Furman held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

In late August, Judge Furman had dismissed some of the claims, but said those under the NYGBL survive. 

Now fact discovery is due by April 6, 2021; the parties are to indicate by letter by January 15 if they would like Judge Furman to refer their dispute to a Magistrate of the SDNY Mediation Program.

Scheduled is a pre-trial conference on April 8 in Judge Furman's courtroom 1105 in 40 Foley Square.

The case is Bassaw v. United Industries Corporation et al., 19-cv-7759 (Furman)
