PFAS Cost Recovery Program (Deadline is April 21st)
The PFAS cost recovery program requires utilities to register prior to a settlement being reached in order to benefit from the settlement. The cost recovery program consist of multiple classes of plaintiffs thus it is not considered a class action. In a class action anyone in the identified class may benefit when a settlement is reached. The PFAS cost recovery program is a multi-district litigation (MDL) and in order to benefit, the utility must be registered.
While we cannot guarantee when a settlement will take, a bellwether trial is scheduled for spring 2023. This typically energizes the seriousness of negotiation talks and it is conceivable a settlement could be reached before the end of 2022.
