Update on Lawsuit

Good Evening Neighbor:

I spoke with Scott Zahler, Atty today with regard to recent news that there maybe a group of people going door to door to ask our neighbors to sign on to the class action lawsuit.  He said that he had not heard of anything such as this and that it would be coming from the defendant's office if it were taking place.  He also confirmed for me that once you become a part of the class action suit you will not be able to pursue any other legal action in the future against AMVAC or PSC.  

I had asked in earlier conversations that we setup a Town Hall Meeting and have that date included in any letter that would be going out from the attorney's office on October 23 or 24th but it does not appear that this will be an option.  Therefore, I will contact Bethany United Methodist about having our own Town Hall Meeting - Mr. Zahler and staff confirmed that they will be there to answer your questions.  

I will get back to everyone as soon as possible with regard to an upcoming meeting.  I think it is crucial that our community be fully informed before we sign any legal document.

Your neighbor,


Connie Thomas Biemiller, Chair
South Fulton and Fayette Community Task Force

Never underestimate the power of a few committed people to change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
