Preliminary deal on US Imprelis suits
A US court has allowed preliminary settlement of a class action lawsuit involving damages claims over DuPont’s turf herbicide, Imprelis (aminocyclopyrachlor). The class action is being considered in the Eastern District Court of Pennsylvania. Eighteen lawsuits filed in ten states were consolidated in the Court in October 2011 ( Agrow No 627, p 17). Last month, some 48 lawsuits were pending.
