Faruqi & Faruqi Obtains Final Approval of Settlement Valued at $48 Million on Behalf of Scotts EZ Seed Consumers


Faruqi & Faruqi is proud to announce final approval of a settlement valued at $48,000,000 on behalf of a New York and California class of Scotts EZ Seed consumers. Following over six years of hard-fought litigation by plaintiffs’ counsel, both class members and United States District Court Judge Vincent L. Briccetti of the Southern District of New York have recognized the tremendous result achieved on behalf of the classes.

The action challenged Scotts’ representation that its products allow consumers’ grass to grow 50% thicker with half the water. At a minimum, consumers who submit a claim can receive a refund of up to $45, even without proof of purchase. Consumers with proof of purchase can receive a refund of up to $90, an exceptional result for class members.
Faruqi & Faruqi served as co-lead counsel for the classes, guiding and overseeing the resolution of the case from its inception. Timothy J. Peter is lead attorney on this matter for Faruqi & Faruqi and can be reached at (215) 277-5770.
