Representing more than 7,000 U.S. corn growers in a class-action lawsuit against Syngenta AG, Pat Stueve of Stueve Siegel Hanson LLP in Kansas City is a co-lead counsel on a legal team that won a $217.7 million verdict. The case was heard in the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas, and is the first of eight similar state class-action suits currently underway against Switzerland-based Syngenta (SYT).
A U.S. jury on Friday ordered Syngenta AG to pay $217.7 million to more than 7,000 Kansas farmers over its decision to commercialize a genetically modified strain of corn before China approved importing it. The verdict by a federal jury in Kansas City, Kansas, was announced by lawyers for the farmers, who blamed the Swiss company for causing catastrophic damage to them after Chinese officials began refusing U.S. corn shipments in 2013. Thousands of other corn producers and traders also are seeking damages over China's non-approval of the agrochemical giant's corn seeds for importation.
