Case of the Day: In re Sygenta AG MIR162 Corn Litig. 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 163547 (D. Kan. Nov. 23, 2016)


Class is certified for a class action litigation against Defendant Sygenta. The plaintiffs claim that Sygenta falsely represented to corn farmers that its strain of corns was approved for importation to China, although it was not. In 2013, China began rejecting shipments of U.S. corn, and did not open the corn market until 2016.


There are so many things about the modern world that the modern people who live in it do not know very well. One of those things is the regulation of foodstuff, how it is produced and sold according to the laws of various countries. This will be an interesting case to watch, if it progresses to the trial stage.
