WHAT IS THIS LITIGATION ABOUT ?

A $7,200,000.00 class-action settlement (the “Proposed Retailer Settlement”) has been reached with the four Retailer Defendants in a lawsuit regarding the sale and use of Super S Supertrac 303 Tractor Hydraulic Fluid, Super S 303 Tractor Hydraulic Fluid, Cam2 ProMax 303 Tractor Hydraulic Oil, and/or Cam2 303 Tractor Hydraulic Oil (“303 THF Products”). The Proposed Retailer Settlement settles claims against Retailer Defendants Tractor Supply Company, Orscheln Farm and Home LLC, Rural King Administration, Inc., R.K. Family, Inc., R.K. Holdings, LLP, Mattoon Rural King Store, Inc., Waterloo Rural King Supply, Inc., Vandalia Rural King Supply, Inc., RK Distribution, LLC, Rural King Holding Co. (collectively referred to as “Rural King”), and Atwood Distributing, LP, together with each of their affiliates, divisions, subsidiaries, and assigns (collectively referred to as “Retailer Defendants”) that were asserted in a Multi-District Litigation (“MDL”) lawsuit. Plaintiffs believe that the primary claims in the MDL are against Smitty’s Supply, Inc. and CAM2 International, LLC (collectively referred to as “Manufacturer Defendants”), and those claims are proceeding in the MDL and have not been settled.
