This page is about the 3M earplug lawsuit. If you are a plaintiff in these lawsuits, you want to know when the 3M lawsuit will be settled, what the individual settlement amounts might be, and get the latest update in the class action. I start with the latest 3M earplug lawsuit update and then get into the rest.
January 13, 2022 Update: Yesterday was dedicated to Elliott Berger’s testimony. The now-retired Berger is a central figure in the 3M earplug lawsuits. He was involved in the design of the CAEv2 earplugs. On Tuesday, the first day of testimony, plaintiffs offered fact witness testimony and a key expert.
January 11, 2022 Update: The next bellwether trial in the 3M earplugs MDL began as scheduled today as both parties gave opening statements. Two 3M earplug lawsuits will be tried together in this case. This weekend, Judge Rogers denied a last-minute motion for a continuance filed by 3M. The one-week continuance was requested after several members of 3M’s defense team tested positive for COVID-19 on January 4th. Judge Rogers found that a continuance was unnecessary because under CDC guidelines, all the team members could come out of quarantine by January 9th.
