Domina Law Group attorneys Dave Domina and Brian Jorde met in Weeping Water for a free informational meeting on Syngenta lawsuits.
Dave Domina and Brian Jorde held a meeting on March 7 to inform Nebraskans about the much-hyped Syngenta lawsuits. All corn farmers and producers may have claims for crops exported from 2011 to 2014 due to a GMO corn trait MIR162.
Domina Law Group is currently investigating claims against Syngenta. If you are a corn farmer or producer, we invite you to contact our law firm to assess your potential financial recovery.
If you are a corn producer or a corn seller, you are a potential claimant – even if you did not plant Syngenta's GMO corn seed (sold as Agrisure Viptera or Agrisure Duracade).
"It is thought Syngenta misinformed farmers, elevators and exporters that MIR162 approval by China was imminent and posed no problem for the corn market. However, even after Syngenta's upper management knew better, Syngenta continued to offer more MIR162 lines without disclosures. Even if the grain is good for some uses, it was not exportable on satisfactory terms," Domina said.
The claims are complex, but essentially claim that Syngenta negligently sold GMO corn seed to U.S. farmers and growers before it received approval from China, one of the U.S.'s largest corn importers. Because China initially rejected shipments of U.S. corn, the lawsuits allege, the U.S. corn market suffered.
