After years of litigation involving possible autoimmune disease side effects of silicone breast implants, four major breast implant manufacturers agreed to pay $4.25 billion to settle class action litigation. The terms of the settlement dictated that $1 billion would go to attorneys fees, $1.2 billion would go to women claiming current implant-related side effects, and the rest would go to women with breast implants who became ill over the next 30 years. The suit involved 3M, Corning, Baxter and Bristol-Meyers Squibb/MEC, and, at the time, the action represented the largest class action suit in history.
