Thousands of veterans suing over 3M earplugs are closer to resolution

Katherine Snow Smith September 3, 2020

The recent denial of 3M Company’s attempt to have the courts dismiss litigation from 150,000 veterans suffering hearing loss or tinnitus from faulty earplugs means one of the country’s largest multidistrict cases is moving closer to settlement or trial.

1. When I was in the service no one wore ear plugs and the Army didn't supply them.

Any earplug is better than no earplug, but here we have a class action lawsuit because the Army didn't
furnish the "Best" earplugs. This kinda reminds me of shyster lawyers wanting to make money off of
our government. Wonder what their % of the lawsuit will be? If they really cared about veterans,
wouldn't they be doing it for free? Or do they think we're a bunch of losers and suckers?

2. yeah, what's an earplug, and the m-14 was pretty loud

But, I didn't go into Artillery, so my hearing is pretty much intact.

I'm glad to hear the Army is using hearing protection. I wonder if they also use eye protection (another thing we didn't bother with)
