Syngenta Settlement Approved by Federal Judge

Syngenta Settlement Approved by Federal Judge

On December 7, 2018, Kansas US District Court Judge J. W. Lungstrum approved the $1.51 billion settlement of the Syngenta GMO corn class action lawsuit. According to attorneys close to the litigation, the earliest time for settlement distribution checks to producers and others is April 2019. If the judicial order approving the settlement is appealed, that additional litigation would delay settlement checks by months or even years.
