September 25, 2023 Update on status of Settlement for all Classes

The Class Action Settlement in Baker v. Saint-Gobain Performance Plastic Corp, et al., has been fully disbursed to all eligible claimants who filed timely claim forms. The class action itself continues to be litigated against the sole remaining defendant, DuPont de Nemours & Co.  If a settlement with this defendant is eventually reached or there is a favorable verdict after trial, a new claims process will begin and information relating to that process will be posted on this website. Please check this site periodically for further updates. 

If you received a class action notice from a DuPont settlement involving Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF) firefighting foam contamination and you have questions about whether you are included in that settlement, please call Class Counsel James Bilsborrow or Steve Schwarz as soon as possible. Their contact information is listed in FAQ 15.
