Columbus, OH (PRWEB) June 25, 2013
The Imprelis lawsuit lawyers at Wright & Schulte, LLC have filed another Imprelis tree damage lawsuit on behalf of 33 property owners who live throughout the U.S. This Imprelis lawsuit(case no. N13C-04-281 EMD) names E.I. DuPont De Nemours and Co. as the defendant. As with previously filed Wright & Schulte Imprelis tree damage lawsuits, this case will be litigated in the Superior Court of Delaware, New Castle County.
This Imprelis lawsuit specifically alleges that many of the trees and other plant life on the plaintiffs’ properties were permanently damaged, if not killed, as a result of Imprelis use. Furthermore, this lawsuit alleges that DuPont intentionally mislead consumers into thinking that Imprelis was the safe and effective and that, even after reports of Imprelis tree damage began to surface, DuPont doubled down and blamed these reports of Imprelis tree damage on improper application of the herbicide, rather than problems with Imprelis itself.
June 28th Deadline to Opt Out of Imprelis Class-Action Settlement is Fast Approaching
The plaintiffs cited in this Imprelis lawsuit, as well as many others, have chosen to opt out of the class-action Imprelis lawsuit settlement. The deadline to opt out of this settlement is Friday, June 28, 2013. This choice has, in part, been due to the fact that DuPont has made paltry compensation offers to consumers involved in the class-action settlement. In fact, Richard Schulte, a partner with Wright & Schulte LLC, 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,” stated Mr. Schulte.

According to court documents for this Imprelis lawsuit, the plaintiffs contracted with landscaping companies whose employees applied Imprelis to the plaintiffs’ properties throughout the spring of 2011. Employees of the landscaping companies reportedly use Imprelis as instructed by DuPont’s; nevertheless, within months of the Imprelis application, trees and other vegetation on the plaintiffs’ properties had allegedly become severely damage. For some plaintiffs, a single application of Imprelis was allegedly enough to cause such devastation. Among the specific signs of Imprelis tree damage and death cited in court documents included browning, curling, twisting, stunted leaf growth and stem die-back.
DuPont Receives Stop Sale Order for Imprelis from EPA
Consumer reports of Imprelis tree damage began snowballing shortly after Imprelis was introduced in October 2010. Due to the growing number of these reports, by June 2011, the EPA initiated its own investigation regarding the alleged problems with Imprelis. Soon thereafter, the EPA had acquired sufficient evidence to link Imprelis use to serious tree damage and death and, as a result, mandated that DuPont to immediately stop selling and distributing Imprelis herbicide. By that time, the EPA has received more than 7,000 reports of Imprelis tree damage from consumers nationwide.
