Thousands of service members and veterans have made claims related to their use of the 3M Combat Arms earplugs and leadership in the MDL is working diligently to set the stage for justice for these individuals.
Recent developments have given firms involved in this litigation several issues to consider. Records from the Department of Defense are being made available pursuant to a Touhy request coordinated through the office of Lead Counsel. In addition, a tolling agreement has been negotiated, with requirements for firms to deliver certain information about their clients, along with specified documents.
The tolling agreement has deadlines for producing the requested information and the associated documentation and firms are advised to monitor these dates carefully if they are electing to sign the tolling agreement.
Verus is assisting several firms with their 3M earplugs cases and we are proud to be helping support this effort for those who have served our country.
