No, there is no class action lawsuit for AFFF exposure. However, there is a multidistrict litigation in which most plaintiffs are civilian or military firefighters who allege their cancer diagnosis is the consequence of using the fire suppressant on the job.
Currently, there are over 3,700 active cases pending in the multidistrict litigation, and their number is growing with each passing month.
The multidistrict litigation, in which dozens of AFFF manufacturers are named as defendants, will be taking place in the District of South Carolina.
Plaintiffs claim that Du Pont and many other manufacturers failed to warn civilian and military firefighters about the risk of developing cancer by using this fire suppressant. The multidistrict litigation is overseen by Judge Richard M. Gergel.
