First settlement payments from Syngenta lawsuit are being mailed
The first settlement payments to farmers in the Syngenta corn class action lawsuit will start going out later this week, according to a news release from the Kansas City law firm representing farmers in the case.
The announcement says most of the farmers can expect total payments exceeding 5,000 dollars. The payments stem from the one-point-five billion dollar settlement related to Syngenta’s marketing and commercialization of Agrisure Viptera and Agrisure Duracade corn seeds, which is believed to be the largest agricultural settlement in U.S. history.
To receive payment, participants in the class action lawsuit must have submitted all required payment documents, including W-9 forms. The law firm says no payments will be made unless and until a W-9 form is received. They can be submitted at www.cornseedsettlement.com.
