Both...My Insurance company told me to let them know if I wanted to start the claims. But as of right now I'm holding out on Dupont. Talked to the State chemist yesterday and They have overwelming evidence that this is not a applicator error, They collected over 400 property samples and data to prove that this to be a label problem. They are also just about ready to send letters to all companies who have bought or used Imprelis to issue a State wide stop use.

Dupont and the EPA issued a stop sale and use order several weeks ago. This certainly would have included Indiana?

pretty sure a federal stop use order would trump a state order. DuPont T&O division is toast at this point. Any guess as to who buys it?
