Bullseye Glass reaches $6.5 million class-action settlement
Bullseye Glass has announced a $6.5 million settlement with plaintiffs in a class action lawsuit against the Southeast Portland glass manufacturer, which was accused of emitting unhealthy levels of toxic heavy metals into the air.
Several people sued Bullseye in 2016 after raising concerns about the health of people living near the glass-making facility.
The settlement ends the lawsuit.
Attorney fees and costs like expert witnesses will take up $2 million from the settlement. Another $1 million will pay for air quality testing.
The rest will be divvied up among residents for things like air purifiers and soil testing.
