Columbus, OH (PRWEB) February 16, 2015
The Syngenta lawsuit lawyers at Wright & Schulte LLC announce that they have scheduled a series of town hall meetings to provide legal assistance to Ohio farmers, corn distributors and others who may have incurred significant financial losses due to Syngenta Inc.’s marketing of Viptera GMO (genetically modified) corn seed prior to its approval in China. In 2013, Chinese regulators began rejecting U.S. corn shipments tainted with the Viptera trait, causing prices for the commodity to plummet. It has been estimated that China’s rejections have cost the U.S. agricultural industry in excess of $1 billion.

Wright & Schulte LLC’s Syngenta lawyers are endeavoring to help Ohio farmers become more educated about the growing Syngenta litigation, as well as a local law firm and attorneys willing and able to stand up for their rights against this large agribusiness. The firm currently has two meetings scheduled in Ohio:
February 17, 2015 – 6:00 p.m.
Drury Inn & Suites
820 Trenton Avenue
Findlay, OH 45840
February 19, 2015 – 6:00 p.m.
Drury Inn & Suites
6616 Miller Lane
Dayton, OH 45414
The Syngenta lawyers at Wright & Schulte LLC invite and encourage Ohio farmers who grew any variety of commercial grade hybrid corn from 2011 through 2014 to attend one or both of these meetings to learn more about their legal rights. Attendance will in no way construe an obligation to file a Syngenta lawsuit, or to retain Wright & Schulte LLC for such a legal claim.
Syngenta Lawsuit Litigation
China is one of the most important markets for U.S. corn growers, and has a well-known zero tolerance policy regarding the sale of unapproved seed products. As a result of Viptera contamination, China rejected more than 1.2 million tons of corn exported from this country. While Chinese regulators did finally approve Viptera in December 2014, Wright & Schulte LLC believes that this approval will do nothing to help farmers recover the losses they have already sustained due to the drop in U.S. corn prices caused by China’s rejections.

Court documents indicate that more than 200 Syngenta lawsuits are now pending in the U.S. District Court, District of Kansas, where all federally-filed claims alleging economic damages due to Syngenta’s handling of GMO varieties have been consolidated for coordinated pretrial proceedings. Plaintiffs involved in this litigation claim that Syngenta aggressively marketed the Viptera seed without warning U.S. corn growers that the GMO product hadn’t yet been approved in China. Once Viptera was on the market, it contaminated other corn varieties when it was planted in fields adjacent to those crops. Further co-mingling occurred at grain elevators, terminal grain facilities, and even ships that carried corn exports to other countries. As a result, it wasn’t long before Viptera had contaminated the entire U.S. corn supply. (In Re: Syngenta AG MIR 162 Corn Litigation – MDL No. 2591)
According to Wright & Schulte LLC, the Syngenta litigation is not about GMO corn. Any farmer in the U.S. who grew commercial grade hybrid corn from 2011 through 2014 – regardless of the variety – is eligible to file a claim in this proceeding.
