Information About Syngenta Corn Lawsuits
Farmers across the nation have initiated lawsuits against Syngenta over
its Viptera GMO corn trait, alleging that Syngenta failed to consult with
and get approval from China before it sold this type of corn seed to U.S.
farmers. The lawsuits allege that, because of this, China’s ban
on U.S. corn imports due to GMO contamination caused all U.S. corn farmers
financial losses. Even farmers who did not plant Syngenta brand corn are
potential claimants, because cross-contamination caused China to ban all
U.S. corn imports for a time.
Syngenta Corn Litigation
Swiss company Syngenta did attempt to block litigation over GMO corn contamination,
but in September 2015, a federal court judge denied the attempt, allowing
litigation to continue.
Information About Syngenta’s Corn Seed
The specific type of corn seed that started this whole controversy is seed
with the MIR162 trait, marketed as
Agrisure Viptera in 2009 and
Agrisure Duracade more recently. This particular trait, a GMO, makes corn resistant to certain
pests. While Domina Law Group takes no public stance on the GMO trait
itself, it was what caused China to reject shipments of U.S. corn.
Syngenta GMO Viptera Seed Claims
Because of cross-contamination, the farmers that were adversely affected
by the GMO Viptera seed were not just the ones who planted that seed.
All corn farmers and sellers across the U.S. may have been negatively
affected by Syngenta and may have cause to file a claim to recover losses.
Why did China reject U.S. corn shipments?
China initially blocked all U.S. corn imports because it had not completed
a review of the GMO trait. Syngenta allegedly did not wait to get approval
from China before selling corn seed with this trait to U.S. corn farmers.
China ended its five-year review of the corn seed in December 2014.
Timeline of the Syngenta Corn Controversy
Domina Law Goes to Gothenburg to Discuss Syngenta
Attorneys Dave Domina and Brian Jorde made their way to Gothenburg, Nebraska
to speak with corn farmers about potential claims against Syngenta.
Get In Line, Not Hyped, About Syngenta Claims
While many attorneys began to exaggerate Syngenta claims and potential
recovery, Attorney Dave Domina urged Nebraska corn farmers that while
getting in line for a claim is probably a good idea, getting hyped is not.
Dos and Don’ts for Corn Farmers
- Syngenta claims are not as easy of a “money maker” as some
attorneys have led farmers to think, so don’t bank on a recovery.
- Do not get discouraged. Domina Law Group believes that Syngenta eventually
will settle, it’s just that the amount is uncertain.
- Don’t plan on funding for your next quarter with Syngenta lawsuit money.
- Do be cautious, but at this point, there is no cause for concern that counter
claims will be filed against producers.
