AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Every Corporation involved in the manufacture of PFAS chemicals should settle their lawsuits with States and municipalities. They can no longer win and should be made responsible for clean up. We the People are entitled to clean air and water. 3 M is the latest Corporation to settle a no win suit.

US industrial conglomerate 3M and the city of Stuart, Florida are making “significant” progress to settle a water pollution suit tied to toxic “forever chemicals” and sought to delay a trial, according to a court filing on Sunday.

3M was scheduled to face trial in South Carolina federal court on Monday in a lawsuit brought by the Florida city accusing the company of manufacturing PFAS, or per- and polyflouroalkyl substances, despite knowing for decades that the chemicals can cause cancer and other ailments.

“The parties are making material and significant progress toward a resolution and believe that their time would be more productively spent attempting to resolve the matter,” lawyers said in the filing with US district court in South Carolina.
