DOW MAKES A DEAL ON IMPLANTS

MORE THAN THREE YEARS AFTER FILING FOR BANKRUPTCY PROTECTION, Dow Corning and negotiators for the women with its silicone breast implants have reached a $3.2 billion settlement that would end the company's bankruptcy. The 16-year settlement trust will cover claims for medical conditions resulting from implant use or ruptures, as well as costs of removing implants. Details must be worked out over the next two months, then win bankruptcy court approval, before claimants vote on the plan. Women who don't agree to the deal can still sue.EDITED BY KELLEY HOLLAND
