Parker Waichman Alonso LLP and its partner law firms, with Daryl Haley and Mary Ann Haley as lead plaintiffs, have brought a class action lawsuit against DuPont in U.S. District Court of the Northern District of Iowa Cedar Rapids Division alleging that DuPont should have pulled the Imprelis herbicide from the market instead of blaming “environmental factors or improper application by lawn care professionals.

DuPont has acknowledged that Imprelis is damaging to some species of trees. In a letter to lawn care professional, DuPont expressed regret and that they would “promptly and fairly resolve problems associated with our product.”

This comes after thousands of trees in Minnesota, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Wisconsin have been killed after Imprelis, a professional grade herbicide was used nearby.

The EPA is currently conducting and expedited review of the complaints.

The class action alleges violations of the Delaware Consumer Fraud Act, and the Delaware Deceptive Trade Practices Act, as well as claims of product liability, strict liability, negligence, breach of express warranty, breach of implied warranty of merchantability, and breach of implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose.

The lawsuit seeks declaratory relief and injunctive relief, monetary and statutory damages, and attorney’s fees.
