"The one question I get a lot still is, 'If I sit on my hands
and do nothing, will I be left out if there a settlement?'" Domina
said. "And the answer to that question is yes."
Attorney Dave Domina was the only lawyer featured in
The Progressive Farmer’s recent article on Syngenta MIR 162 lawsuits, specifically touching on whether lawyers
want to get involved in this behemoth litigation.
rejected imports of U.S. corn because of the MIR 162
Agrisure Viptera trait. All corn producers between 2011 and 2014, even those who didn’t
plant this type of Syngenta corn, may have been affected due to cross-contamination,
and all were susceptible to financial losses due to a drop in the nationwide
price of corn in response to the temporary loss of the Chinese market.
Attorneys Dave Domina and Brian Jorde toured Nebraska earlier this year
and held informational meetings for any farmer, rancher, or Nebraska landowner
who may have been affected by Syngenta corn and China’s refusal
of U.S. shipments. In the article, Domina explained that he would file
his lawsuit against Syngenta in a matter of weeks for individuals who
get their information sheets back to him by October 4.
Last week, a federal court rejected Syngenta’s attempt to get these
cases dismissed, so the ruling allows lawsuits to go forward, however
the federal court also rejected a number of cases against Syngenta as
well. Domina stated his belief that many claims were rejected because
they were filed by underprepared lawyers who didn’t provide adequate
information, about bushel production for example. Domina also stated his
belief that other cases were dismissed because lawyers were simply trying
to milk the most money out of these cases.
Domina Law Group’s client list for Syngenta claims is substantial
and growing, adding 30 farmers in one day alone this week.
