Wolverine Resolves PFAS Claims with State of Michigan and 3M
Two years after the State of Michigan sued Wolverine for allegedly contaminating groundwater with PFAS, the shoemaker settled the State’s claims, agreeing to pay $69.5 million and extend municipal water to over a thousand properties that rely on groundwater as drinking water. One day after the Consent Decree was entered Wolverine settled its related claims against 3M, with 3M agreeing to pay $55 million to Wolverine.
