US law firm questions Imprelis deal

A US law firm representing clients claiming damages from DuPont over its turf herbicide, Imprelis (aminocyclopyrachlor), questions whether a proposed settlement is sufficient to compensate for the loss of damaged trees, replanting and reductions in property values. The law firm, Wright & Schulte (Columbus, Ohio), says that none of its clients are participating in the settlement because “the offers are inadequate”. A preliminary settlement of a class action lawsuit was agreed earlier this year ( Agrow No 658, p 13). It covers three classes of claimants: property owners, lawn care professionals, and golf courses or other applicators. A court ruling on whether the settlement should be finalised is scheduled for September. Claimants wishing to seek their own damages have until June to opt out of the proposed settlement.
