Wright & Schulte LLC Reports Settlement Reached in Thousands of Imprelis Lawsuits Currently Pending in Pennsylvania Federal Court


The Imprelis Lawyers at Wright & Schulte LLC, Who are Already Representing Hundreds of Property Owners in Imprelis Lawsuits Outside of the Pennsylvania Litigation, Will Continue to Offer Free Imprelis Lawsuit Evaluations to Any Property Owner Dissatisfied with DuPont's Imprelis Compensation Offers.

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) November 05, 2012

Wright & Schulte LLC reports today that DuPont has reached an agreement to settle thousands of Imprelis lawsuits currently filed in Pennsylvania federal court on behalf of property owners who sustained damage to landscape trees, allegedly due to DuPont's now-recalled Imprelis herbicide. According to court records, the proposed Imprelis lawsuit settlement will allow consumers to maintain individual personal injury and environmental claims against DuPont and still receive compensation for tree maintenance, replacements and other damage caused by Imprelis. (In re Imprelis Herbicide Marketing, Sales Practices and Products Liability Litigation, Case No. 11-md-2284).

Imprelis herbicide was introduced by DuPont in October 2010 and marketed as a safe and effective way to treat the most common and hard to kill broadleaf weeds without any negative impact on surrounding plants. However, after investigating hundreds of reports of Imprelis tree death throughout the Northeast and Midwest U.S., the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a Stop Sale and Removal Order for Imprelis in August 2011. By that time, the EPA had received 7,000 reports of Imprelis tree damage and death from DuPont.

In addition to the settlement recently announced in the federal Imprelis litigation, DuPont has also established its own Imprelis compensation program. However, Richard Schulte, a partner with Wright & Schulte LLC, recently told the Columbus Dispatch that the offers DuPont has made to property owners via that program are inadequate. Mr. Schulte and the firm are currently representing some 300 property owners in Imprelis lawsuits filed outside the federal litigation in Pennsylvania.

Wright & Schulte LLC continues to offer free Imprelis lawsuit evaluations on behalf of property owners who suffered damage to landscape trees due to Imprelis, including any claimant dissatisfied with the terms of DuPont's Imprelis claims program, or the proposed settlement in the Pennsylvania litigation.
