Class Action

Received a letter in the mail today wanting my participation in a class action lawsuit against Syngenta for unapproved traits in its corn.  I'm sure many others on this site received nearly the same letter.  Not quite sure what to take of all of it, what does everyone else think?

Re: Class Action

Shagg - attended a meeting here in Nebraska concerning this matter with the information our group recieved the suit has already been placed by Cargill , ADM , and a few other big outfits--- This attorney said it should be a  '' mass'' action suit instead of class action which what I'm hearing has already been filed in Federal court in Kansas--- This procedure in supposed to be a different direction although similar to class action --- personally I think out of court action ''may''  apply --- ''strictly my opinion'' - had a incert my disclaimer and results may vary ---

Re: Class Action

That's exactly what I thought, it was already filed. I guess my question is, What have I got to lose?

Re: Class Action

Are ther enough farmers, or people in ag for that matter, to support all the legal firms trying to get involved in this one?????

 

Times must really be hard in the legal "rackets".

 

IMO ------ this suit has little or no chance of seeing a court room.  But there will be legal expenses.

 

And why should an american company be responsible for a Chinese marketing ploy?:"???

 

 

If Americans had only one manufacturer left in the US to buy from and get a job from, we would all line up and sue them out of existance in hopes of never having to work again.  

I wonder what the ratio of legal suits per capita in the US is --------------- google knothead.........  18 million suits filed annually in State and local courts with another half million filed in federal court....Harvard Law.

 

We are "court certified".......... 

Leave the scum alone......  The protection rackets......

 

Singenta does not deserve to pay for China's hype to buy cheaper corn.  It will be thrown out of court............ or should be.

Re: Class Action

SW - I attended one of these meetings which was a ''marketing'' or sales pitch for the suit - interesting being the defendant might-may-could have -- already settled out of court with a '' major '' grain marketing company --- I guess the courts should only be for BTO's and not folks off the street ?  I do agree with your 4 statements and it reminds me of the information put out by my beef checkoff BTO's we need to label for our foriegn trade market meat customers with USA label -although not applied to our home or domestic market ?
