$12.5 Billion Settlement with 3M Company

Napoli Shkolnik, along with Plaintiffs’ Co-Lead and Interim Class Counsel, is proud to announce a $12.5 billion settlement with 3M Company in the ongoing multi-district litigation over the contamination of drinking water with toxic per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (“PFAS”) resulting from the widespread use of aqueous film-forming foam (“AFFF”). This historic class action settlement agreement resolves the claims of Public Water Systems across the country that have been impacted by actual or threatened contamination of their water systems with PFAS.

This proposed class settlement is the result of many months of negotiations between the parties and is subject to approval by Judge Richard M. Gergel, who was assigned in December 2018 to oversee the ongoing MDL proceedings in the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina.

$1.185 Billion Settlement with Dupont, Chemours, Corteva

Napoli Shkolnik is pleased to announce a major breakthrough in the pursuit of justice for water providers and their communities affected by PFAS contamination in the United States. Working diligently alongside our co-leads, we have successfully settled the material terms with defendants DuPont, Chemours, and Corteva regarding their responsibility for the PFAS contamination of public water systems and the associated costs of treatment.
