Lumber Liquidators in hot water

Dec. 2, 2013 - An American store that sells discount hardwood flooring, Lumber Liquidators is the subject of a class-action lawsuit filed by one of its shareholders. The lawsuit accuses company executives of making false and misleading statements about the sourcing of its wood products.

Lumber Liquidators, based in Toano, has been under investigation by federal authorities on suspicion of importing illegally logged wood products from Russia, through China, as well as importing wood flooring tainted with excess formaldehyde, the suit says.
