Columbus, OH (PRWEB) May 25, 2013
The product liability lawyers at Wright & Schulte, LLC have filed an Imprelis lawsuit on behalf of 23 property owners who live throughout the U.S. This case (case no. N13C-04-280 EMD) was filed on April 25, 2013 and names E.I. DuPont De Nemours and Co. as the defendant. As with previously filed Wright & Schulte Imprelis lawsuits, this case will be litigated in the Superior Court of Delaware, New Castle County.
This Imprelis lawsuit alleges that, due to the use Imprelis, many of the trees and other plant life on the plaintiffs’ properties were irreversibly damaged, if not killed. Additionally, this case contends that DuPont misrepresented the safety and effectiveness of Imprelis to consumers and that, even when consumers began reporting Imprelis tree damage, DuPont attributed these claims to improper application of the herbicide, rather than potential dangers or problems with Imprelis.
While some individuals with claims of Imprelis tree damage have consolidated their complaints into an Imprelis class action lawsuit, many others – including the plaintiffs in this case – are refusing to join these Imprelis class action lawsuits, especially in light of the reportedly meager settlement offers DuPont has made in these cases. In fact, Richard Schulte, a partner with Wright & Schulte LLC, has stated that DuPont’s Imprelis settlement offers to date are inadequate and that they do not come close to the covering the costs associated with Imprelis tree damage. “None of our clients are participating in the settlements because the offers are inadequate,” has stated Mr. Schulte.

The complaint for this case explains that the various property owners contracted with lawn care companies and that these professionals applied Imprelis to the plaintiffs’ properties throughout the spring of 2011. The lawn care companies had reportedly applied Imprelis per DuPont’s instructions, and within months of the Imprelis application, trees and other plant life on the plaintiffs’ properties had all reportedly sustained severe damage. For some plaintiffs, a single application of Imprelis was allegedly sufficient to cause such devastation. Some of the specific signs of Imprelis tree damage and death that the plaintiffs’ plant life reportedly displayed included browning, curling, twisting, stunted leaf growth and stem die-back.
DuPont Receives Stop Sale Order for Imprelis from EPA
Shortly after Imprelis was introduced in October 2010, reports of Imprelis tree damage began accumulating from consumers across the U.S. Due to these reports, by June 2011, the EPA announced that it would conduct its own investigation into the alleged problems with Imprelis. Within months, the EPA had accumulated enough evidence to link Imprelis use to serious tree damage and death and, consequently, ordered DuPont to immediately stop selling and distributing Imprelis herbicide. At the time of issuing the stop sale order for Imprelis, the EPA has received more than 7,000 reports of Imprelis tree damage from consumers nationwide.
