Farm Litigation Report July 2022
This is the first edition of the Farm Litigation Report, a free periodic newsletter to farmers we have had the honor to represent. The newsletter will focus on litigation affecting farmers. We hope you find these articles informative.
The types of litigation we plan to cover in this newsletter are illustrated by cases we have handled in the past. Many of you may remember some or all of these cases. My first case representing farmers was back in the late 1990’s. It was against Monsanto and Delta & Pine. They had sold genetically modified cotton seed varieties that suffered from a malady known as bronze wilt. Many farmers (including my relatives) who purchased these varieties lost up to half of their normal yield, if not more. We filed a lawsuit in Dunklin County, Missouri, and ultimately recovered close to all of the farmers’ losses.
