Judge to Consider $50M Settlement Against Grain Processing Corp.

Court heard arguments in whether to approve settlement in a years-long class action lawsuit over air pollution

A judge will consider Tuesday whether to approve a $50 million settlement in a class action case over air pollution in Muscatine, IA, reports Iowa Public Radio.

Under the agreement, Grain Processing Corporation would have to pay $45 million to area residents and their lawyers, and spend $5 million on pollution control projects.

Neighbors of the company's corn milling plant in Muscatine alleged in the years-long case that haze, odors and particles from the GPC plant harmed their quality of life and interfered with their full use of their own property.
