About This Settlement
This Notice provides information about a settlement that has been proposed in a class action lawsuit involving architectural paint purchased between January 1, 2002, and December 13, 2017, which paint contained, in some form, titanium dioxide, manufactured by E.I. DuPont de Nemours and Company, Huntsman International LLC, Kronos Worldwide, Inc., and Cristal USA Inc., f/k/a Millennium Inorganic Chemicals Inc. (the "Defendants"). This paint is referred to throughout this Notice as the “Architectural Paint.” For clarity, as an example, Architectural Paint would include any paint you would have used to paint something around your home or business such as walls, floors, ceilings, or some other surface either inside or outside.
The proposed settlement provides cash compensation and other benefits to those who bought Architectural Paint for use. If the paint was bought for resale, the paint is not included in the settlement.
If you purchased Architectural Paint between January 1, 2002, and December 13, 2017, for personal use, not resale, your legal rights are affected by the proposed settlement whether you act or not.
