[Toano, Va.] A class action lawsuit representing Lumber Liquidators customers in three states has been filed in federal court, marking the third class-action lawsuit the company now faces, WY Daily reported.

The latest suit is filed on behalf of customers in Virginia, New York and Alabama who purchased wood products from the Toano-based company. The new suit alleges the company sold wood with elevated levels of formaldehyde and the company knowingly bought wood from the habitat of an endangered tiger, a violation of both Russian and U.S. law.

According to the report, “economic and injunctive relief” is sought for those who purchased wood flooring the company imported from China. It is not seeking damages from personal injuries caused by formaldehyde exposure. A jury trial has been requested in the suit.

The aggregated claims for the class represented by the suit exceed $5 million, according to a complaint filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

The complaint features allegations from three customers.

This suit was filed Jan.14, just a few days after the company announced plans to expand its operations in Virginia, a move predicted to create about 250 new jobs in the next three years.
