Co-Lead Counsel Announce Preliminary Global Settlement Framework on behalf of all American corn farmers
September 27, 2017
Following the $217.7 million verdict on behalf of Kansas corn farmers, Co-Lead Class Counsel can confirm a preliminary global settlement framework for all American corn farmers and certain non-producers. Although this is not a final settlement, we will continue negotiations with Syngenta on a final settlement agreement that ultimately must be submitted to the Court for consideration and approval. These negotiations are likely to continue over the next several weeks.
Co-Lead Class Counsel are Scott Powell of Hare, Wynn, Newell & Newton, LLP; Patrick Stueve of Stueve Siegel Hanson, LLP; Don Downing of Gray, Ritter & Graham, P.C. and William Chaney of Gray Reed & McGraw, LLP.
