STANFIELD – A class action lawsuit on behalf of Stanfield residents against 3D Idapro Solutions is suspended.
Those who qualify for a settlement payment have until February 4 to file a claim. This is evident from the records on the website of Liddle & Dubin PC, a Detroit-based law firm that is handling the lawsuit.
3D Idapro Solutions operated a drainage facility in Stanfield for several years before the facility closed in 2019. In 2017, a fire extinguishing system burned in the facility, which helped reduce the odors caused by rotting potato scraps. The company replaced the fire damaged scrubber and made other changes to reduce the odor. However, residents in the area continued to complain in city council meetings and elsewhere that strong odors from the property were affecting their quality of life. Some told the city council at the time that the smells caused physical reactions such as vomiting.
Liddle & Dubin PC did not return a request for comment, but court documents show that a lawsuit was filed against 3D Idapro Solutions in February 2019 alleging the company’s actions caused a decline in plaintiffs’ property values due to the smell. According to the company’s website, the company “has firmly denied and continues to deny all misconduct and liability claims,” but agreed to a $ 500,000 settlement to avoid further legal costs.
According to Liddle & Dubin PC, the $ 500,000 settlement will be split between the parties to the lawsuit after legal fees and legal fees are deducted. The settlement class includes people who live or own homes within 4 miles of the facility at 405 Hoosier Road, Stanfield at any time after February 26, 2013, and people who join the company before April 15 Housing data sheet submitted 2020.
The law firm’s website states that eligible individuals who wish to receive a portion of the settlement must file a claim for damages by February 4. If you object to the terms of the settlement or want to exclude yourself from the settlement, you have until January 20th to do so. Those who are part of the settlement class but do nothing before these time limits have expired will not receive any part of the settlement but will also release their claims against the defendant, which means they could not file their own lawsuit on the same matter.
The East Oregonian was unable to find a website or contact information for 3D Idapro Solutions, but reached out to 3D Corporate Solutions, which listed the same address for its headquarters as before 3D Idapro Solutions, and received no response.
