Litigation Update- September 27, 2017
Plaintiffs and defendants in the Syngenta MIR 162 Corn Litigation have reached a pending settlement to resolve litigation concerning the launch of Syngenta’s Agrisure Viptera and Agrisure Duracade corn traits. The settlement, which is subject to court approval, would establish a settlement fund for the submission of claims by eligible claimants who contracted to price corn or corn by-products after September 15, 2013. Information concerning the settlement fund, claims process, and other details will become available after the parties execute and submit the proposed settlement agreement and other papers to the court later this year. The proposed settlement would allow both sides to avoid the uncertainty of ongoing litigation. The settlement does not constitute an admission by either side concerning the merits of the parties’ allegations and defenses. At this time, current clients are asked to submit your 2016 crop insurance production report and your 2016 and 2017 FSA 578s. If you previously did not provide a Plaintiff Fact Sheet (PFS) or your production information documents for years 2011-2015 that were previously requested of you, please do that as well.
