Imprelis Class Action Lawsuit Plaintiffs Could See Settlement Soon, Clients Can Opt-Out If Settlement Is Insufficient, Reports Wright & Sculte LLC

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) April 02, 2013

Wright & Schulte has learned that the plaintiffs in a federal class action Imprelis lawsuit filed against DuPont could hear about a settlement in their case sometime this week. The plaintiffs, owners of various golf courses throughout central Indiana, had alleged in their Imprelis tree damage lawsuit that thousands of trees and other plant life on their golf courses had been severely damaged, if not killed, allegedly due to the use of Imprelis herbicide. This Imprelis class action lawsuit, which was filed in the summer of 2011, also contended that DuPont mislead consumers in its Imprelis advertising and that, even after consumers reported Imprelis damage, DuPont failed to acknowledge the dangers associated with its herbicide. While the plaintiffs in this case will be hearing about the Imprelis settlement reached any day now, they will not receive any settlement money until September, at which time the final approval hearing for the case will occur. Class action case is Shomo v. E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company (Case Number 1:11-00633), MDL 2284 in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

While a number of claims of Imprelis tree damage from individuals and corporations alike have been consolidated into class action lawsuits that are being litigated in a federal court in Philadelphia, many individuals are choosing to not join class action cases and, instead, to file individual Imprelis lawsuits against DuPont. In fact, Richard Schulte, a partner with Wright & Schulte LLC, has stated that the Imprelis settlement offers DuPont has made are insufficient. “None of our clients are participating in the settlements because the offers are inadequate,” stated Mr. Schulte.

Imprelis Tree Damage & EPA Intervention
DuPont initially marketed Imprelis in October 2010 as a safe and effective way to get rid of the roots of hard-to-kill weeds without presenting any negative impact on surrounding trees and plant life. In fact, advertising for Imprelis stated that it was the “most advanced turf herbicide in over 40 years.” However, lawn care professionals have described Imprelis, which is four times more powerful than Agent Orange, as the industry’s “Hurricane Katrina,” with the full extent of the damage DuPont’s Imprelis has caused only just beginning to manifest itself.

As nationwide consumer reports of Imprelis tree damage began mounting, in June 2011, the EPA started its own investigation into the alleged dangers associated with Imprelis. By August 2011, the EPA had uncovered sufficient evidence that Imprelis was responsible for seriously damaging or killing thousands of trees and, as a result, ordered DuPont to immediately stop selling and distributing Imprelis herbicide. At that time, the EPA has received more than 7,000 reports of Imprelis tree damage from consumers nationwide. [
