What is the 3M Military Earplug Lawsuit About?

The lawsuit alleges that Aearo Technologies supplied defective ear plugs to the U.S. military. These earplugs, known as Dual-Ended Combat Arms Earplugs (or CAEv2), were supposed to protect soldiers from harmful noise. Instead, according to the lawsuit, thousands of Veterans ended up with permanent hearing loss or tinnitus as a result of the defective earplugs. Worse, the lawsuit claims that the company knew the earplugs were defective and supplied them anyway.

The result is the largest mass tort litigation in U.S. history, with 240,000 people expected to be eligible for the settlement. 3M maintains that the earplugs are not defective, however, they have reportedly agreed to pay out over $6 billion between 2023 and 2029. Details of the case are still emerging. Meanwhile, thousands of Veterans stand to get a payout for the issues these earplugs allegedly caused.
