3M Military Combat Arms Earplugs (CAEv2) Lawsuits

From 2003 to 2015, 3M Corp. sold its Combat Arms Earplugs to the Defense Logistics Agency for military use. The dual-ended earplugs were routinely used in several branches of the military and were the only earplugs available to military personnel between 2003 and 2012. In July 2018, 3M Corp. agreed to settle claims that it knowingly supplied the military with defective earplugs that failed to effectively reduce loud noises and caused certain users to suffer hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing in the ears).

What are 3M Military Combat Arms Earplugs (CAEv2)?

3M Military Combat Arms Earplugs (CAEv2) are noise-cancellation devices used by the military to attenuate loud sounds during training and deployment exercises. The earplugs are intended to reduce the likelihood of hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing in the ears), two of the most common conditions reported by military personnel. Hearing loss can result from either a single incident or prolonged exposure to explosive sounds.

What is Happening with 3M Military Combat Arms Earplugs (CAEv2)?

The claims against 3M Corp. allege that the Military Combat Earplugs did not remain securely in the user’s ears and that the company sold its earplugs despite being aware that they were improperly designed. In July, 2018, 3M Corp. settled a lawsuit under the False Claims Act (the “Act”) for $9.1 million for knowingly selling defective earplugs to the military. The whistleblower provisions of the Act enable private parties to bring legal action on behalf of the government against a party who submits fraudulent claims to collect government funds.

The settlement involved claims that 3M Corp. and its predecessor, Aearo Technologies Inc., became aware of flaws in the earplugs back in 2000 and failed to disclose this information to the military prior to finalization of the contract. 3M had also initiated patent infringement lawsuits against competitors who were selling earplugs that effectively reduced loud sounds in military conditions.
