DOE announced today that LG Electronics voluntarily dismissed its lawsuit against DOE over the Department's decision to require LG to use the same energy efficiency tests as other manufacturers and to withdraw the Energy Star label from certain LG refrigerators. The Department's decision also had the effect of requiring LG to cease distributing those refrigerators in commerce no later than March 17, 2010. LG had sought a preliminary injunction against DOE's action last December but lost. LG then proceeded to remove the Energy Star label from the affected products and ceased distributing them in commerce by the March deadline. Nevertheless, the lawsuit was still pending until today when it was dropped by LG upon the filing of the linked Stipulation of Voluntary Dismissal with the Court.
