Plymouth Community School Superintendent Mitch Mawhorter told members of the School Board that over the course of this school year, the corporation has been involved in class-action litigation against Juul Labs, Inc.  That litigation has resulted in a settlement between Juul Labs and schools across the United States. 

The superintendent said in the agreement, PCSC will receive $58,426 for damages minus the fee for the attorneys. The total class-action lawsuit settlement is $255 million.   He said there is a potential to also receive a small bonus from Juul.

During last week’s meeting, Mawhorter thanked school attorney Jeff Houin for his efforts in directing the corporation through the legal process.   

The Plymouth School Board members voted 4-0 with one member absent to approve the signing of all the settlement agreements.
