A $4.1 million federal lawsuit settlement stemming from odors at a Dayton landfill resulted in nearly 1,800 area residents receiving checks, according to an attorney for the plaintiff.
The base share for those approved as class-action members in a Moraine resident’s suit against Stony Hollow Landfill was $602.42, said attorney Nicholas Coulson.
Coulson said Tuesday all checks to approved class-action members from the settlement of the 2016 lawsuit filed by Carly Beck have been sent.
The settlement approved by U.S. District Judge Thomas Rose in November directed Stony Hollow parent company Waste Management Inc. to deposit $1.875 million as part of the class-action.
It also required the 2460 S. Gettysburg Road site to invest $1.45 million there to “reduce the potential for odor emissions,” according to court records.
The landfill has drawn complaints from residents in Jefferson Twp., Kettering, Miamisburg, Moraine, Oakwood and points beyond since early 2016.
