CHICAGO - The Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Aug. 22 reinstated its decision to overturn a ruling by an Illinois federal court that denied certification of a class of claimants who allege that certain front-loading automatic washers cause mold growth (Larry Butler, et al. v. Sears, Roebuck and Co., No. 12-8030, 7th Cir.; 2013 U.S. App. LEXIS 17748).
