?A federal judge will arguments  on September 20 regarding a motion to require DuPont to notify victims of  Imprelis herbicide of the steps needed to preserve evidence of tree damage.

Imprelis was pulled from the market in early August after DuPont acknowledged the herbicide killed or damaged certain species of trees.

Plaintiff representatives filed a motion for a preliminary injunction on August 22, in District Court in Delaware saying that ” evidence that may be necessary to prove which trees it injured and killed, and the amount of damages that resulted, is dissipating with each passing day and may be unwittingly destroyed as trees are replaced.”

The hearing on the injunction was announced after Michael McDermott, global business leader for DuPont Professional Projects, sent a letter to lawn care professionals and golf course superintendents Friday requesting “information about any possible Imprelis-related damage on your or your customers’ properties.” And also that DuPont had partnerships with tree companies that would help customers remove and dispose of the injured or dead trees, the Miami Herald reported. disclaimer: This article: DuPont Heads To Court Over Imprelis Fiasco was posted on Wednesday, August 31st, 2011 at 8:12 pm at and is filed under Toxic Substances Lawsuits.
