Corn lawsuit

Hello. Been a while since I have visited here. I posted this on the business page but it seems to have little activity. A question....Years ago we joined the Sygenta lawsuit. Spent many, many hrs collecting data for it. We have received zero. Have not heard from our legal firm in over a year. Seems they always needed something else from us. Supply it and they still need more. Has anyone on here Seen a check yet?

Re: Corn lawsuit

Hey Marty, I received the first 2/3 last spring and the last 1/3 a couple weeks ago.  I didn`t go through lawyers (even though a firm ultimately handled it) I signed up after it became a class action suit. Seems to me all was needed was giving the law firm permission to get your info from the FSA office.  If you haven`t gotten the first check yet, I`m sorry but that doesn`t look good.  I`d give the law firm a call.   Good luck.

Marty, someone probably missed a deadline for filing or submitted the wrong info. My son was late at getting his stuff in and still got a check finally a week ago or so. Mine came like BA said, I think it was 60 percent up front and the last 40 percent now. Some nice "fun" money to help out with the last few years of depressed prices.

Hope that your check comes, and was just delayed.

My wife is the best book keeper I know. She is maticulas. She made many calls to our legal firm and they assured us that we had a claim.....What was the settlement in cents per bushel? On SS now. Sure could use a boost.

Well, if the commie democrats  (and some traitor republicans) hadn't stolen all of our money it might be better than it is.

Re: Corn lawsuit

About 12.5 cents per bushel on what is called Total Compensable Recovery Quantity. They used average county yield in place of your own yield and the percentages varied from year to year. If you grew Syngenta corn those bushels didn't count.  The firm that handled your claim should have provided all that info.  Of course the lawyers got paid first but I would not have been able to do it myself.
