Plaintiffs purchased a prefabricated home from Defendant Ritz-Craft. Ritz-Craft contracted with Citadel Builders to assemble the home on Plaintiff's site. Plaintiffs filed suit against the Defendants, alleging various defects in the design, construction, and installation of the home. The Court dismissed Plaintiffs' CSPA claims against Citadel, finding that they had failed to establish that a consumer transaction had occurred between the Plaintiffs and Citadel. The contract between the Plaintiffs and Ritz-Craft which was attached to the Complaint did not indicate that Citadel performs services for the ultimate purchaser of a Ritz-Craft home, and the agreement between Ritz-Craft and Citadel was for services to be provided to Ritz-Craft, not to the Plaintiffs. The Court therefore found that Plaintiffs' Complaint had failed to allege facts sufficient to support the existence of a consumer transaction between the Plaintiffs and Citadel.
