RICHMOND, Va. — The Claims Administrator of the settlement reached in In re Syngenta MIR162 Corn Litigation, No. 14-md-2591-JWL-JPO (D. Kan.) and other related actions issues the following announcement on behalf of Settlement Class Counsel to remind farmers that the deadline to file a claim in this settlement is Oct. 12, 2018.
Settlement Class Counsel, on behalf of all corn producers, reached this settlement with Syngenta of lawsuits over the “Agrisure Viptera” and “Agrisure Duracade” corn seeds and how they were marketed. “This settlement provides $1.51 billion for corn farmers, landlords, elevators, shippers and other grain handlers and ethanol plants. Anyone in those groups who has not yet filed a Claim Form with the Claims Administrator should do so now and must do so before time runs out on Oct. 12, 2018, so they can get paid,” said Settlement Class Counsel.
