Wright & Schulte Reports Thousands of Americans Whose Trees Died From Imprelis Will be Included in Class Action Lawsuit if Proposed Settlement is Granted Court Approval


The Imprelis Lawyers at Wright & Schulte LLC, Who are Already Representing Hundreds of Property Owners in Imprelis Lawsuits, Will Continue to Offer Free Imprelis Lawsuit Evaluations to Any Property Owner Dissatisfied with DuPont's Imprelis Compensation and Who Seeks to Opt Out of the Proposed Imprelis Class Action Settlement.

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) November 05, 2012

Wright & Schulte LLC reports today that DuPont and Argus filing class actions have reached a settlement agreement whereby property owners participating in DuPont's Imprelis claims process will be included in the class action settlement agreement currently awaiting court approval in Pennsylvania federal court. Thousands of Imprelis lawsuits are currently pending in U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Pennsylvania on behalf of property owners who sustained damage to landscape trees, allegedly due to DuPont's now-recalled Imprelis herbicide. (In re Imprelis Herbicide Marketing, Sales Practices and Products Liability Litigation, Case No. 11-md-2284).

Any Imprelis claimant dissatisfied with the proposed settlement agreement must opt out if they do not wish to be included in the settlement class. Wright & Schulte LLC is offering free advice to property owners who do not want to be part of the class action lawsuit and who seek to opt out of the proposed settlement.

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.

Richard Schulte, a partner with Wright & Schulte LLC, recently told the Columbus Dispatch that the offers DuPont has made to property owners via its previously established claims 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.
