HOMEOWNERS' LAWSUIT AGAINST GELMAN SCIENCES DISMISSED; JUDGE RULES THAT CLAIMS WERE UNFOUNDED

 ANN ARBOR, Mich., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Gelman Sciences, Inc. (AMEX: GSC) today released the following:
 On Wednesday, Oct. 27, 1993, Judge Patrick J. Conlin, Washtenaw County Circuit Court, dismissed a lawsuit against Gelman Sciences, filed by Bret and Pauline Dawson, residents in Ann Arbor's Evergreen subdivision.
 Their claims were for property depreciation and inability to sell their home because of public perception of contamination and damages arising from fear of future contamination of their well. They also asked for medical monitoring costs.
 In dismissing the case, the judge ruled that unfounded public fear that affects property value is not actionable. He also ruled that unreasonable fears of future contamination do not constitute a nuisance.
