a chemical or biological substance for the purpose of studying or
observing the effects of such exposure (that was sponsored,
overseen, directed, funded, and/or conducted by the Department of
the Army) of any information acquired after the last notice was
provided, and in the future, that may affect their well-being,
when that information becomes available. Plaintiffs are entitled
to an injunction on that Notice Claim and such injunction shall
issue.
