A false advertising class-action lawsuit
was filed against O’Reilly Automotive Stores for allegedly misrepresenting that its windshield wiper fluid protects and functions in temperatures as low as -20 degrees Fahrenheit when, according to the complaint, the fluid freezes in such temperatures and, as a result, cannot be pumped through the windshield wiper system to clean windshields. The lawsuit was originally filed in state court in July 2017 and transferred to federal court in September 2017. (Weishaar et al v. O’Reilly Automotive Stores, Inc.
, Case No. 17-cv-2384, E. D. MO.)
