DuPont Objects to Injunction Regarding Imprelis Evidence

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The Houston Chronicle has reported that DuPont has asked a judge to reject a request by attorney’s for plaintiffs suing over the weed killer Imprelis that would force DuPont to tell customers how to preserve evidence that could be used against DuPont in court.

Plaintiffs are asking for an injunction that would force DuPont to relate a protocol for evidence preservation to consumers who have suffered losses due to Imprelis. Plaintiffs say that consumers may unwittingly dispose of important evidence as they cut down and replace trees. DuPont has already issued a notice to consumers affected by Imprelis saying they will aid them in disposal and replacement of sick or dead trees.

DuPont argues that they should not be forced to tell people how to preserve evidence that may be used against them in a court of law. The judge will hear arguments over the proposed injunction on Tuesday.

The proposed injunction was requested by plaintiffs’ lawyers in consolidated case involving six Imprelis lawsuits.  DuPont has been named in at least 24 lawsuits by property owners who claim to have lost trees to the herbicide.
