A class-action lawsuit over odors emitted from a Dayton, Ohio, landfill has been settled for $4.1 million. The lawsuit was filed in 2016 and stemmed from odors coming from the Stony Hollow Landfill.
According to a Dayton Daily News report, more than 2,000 class-action members signed up to share $1.875 million included in the settlement, court documents show. The settlement deal can include a maximum of 2,039 class-action members, the report noted.
