GPC May Settle Lawsuit

If approved, Grain Processing Corp. will be required to pay more than $50M

GPC May Settle Lawsuit

After an ongoing legal battle, dating back to at least 2012, a proposed agreement has been reached in the Grain Processing Corporation (GPC), Muscatine, IA, class action lawsuit, reports WQAD.

According to court documents, if the settlement is approved in court, GPC will be required to pay more than $50 million.

Court documents show that the payments would include  $45 million into a settlement fund and an additional $6.5 million for pollution controls at the plant.

This comes after residents in the community say the plant's emissions and odors have led to "a loss of enjoyment of property," as well as health complications.
