US Imprelis settlement deadline nears
A US law firm has reminded property owners and lawn care professionals that they only have until June 28th to file a claim in the class action lawsuit settlement with DuPont over tree damage from the turf herbicide, Imprelis (aminocyclopyrachlor). Those who have already submitted a claim but want to opt out of the settlement because they consider it to be inadequate must notify the US District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania by that date. The reminder was issued by the law firm, Gilman Law (Boston, Massachusetts). In April, another law firm, Wright & Schulte (Columbus, Ohio), questioned whether the proposed settlement was sufficient to cover all losses (Agrow No 662, p 20). A Court ruling on whether the settlement should be finalised is scheduled for September.
