DuPont Files Lawsuit against Monsanto

DuPont has filed lawsuit against Monsanto, claiming that Monsanto didn't pay royalties awarded during a previous arbitration decision. It centers around gene-gun technology used to develop herbicide-resistant soybeans. The lawsuit, filed in the Delaware Court of Chancery, seeks to enforce a 2012 arbitration panel decision requiring Monsanto to pay royalties on the technology known as Biolistic. DuPont claimed Monsanto made two initial payments totaling roughly $33.3 million, but then failed to meet additional royalty obligations.

Monsanto to Pay $350,000 to Settle More Wheat-Related Lawsuits

On March 18, 2015, Monsanto announced it will pay about $350,000 to settle class action lawsuits brought by farmers in seven states over genetically modified wheat. The company will make donations of $50,000 to agricultural schools at land grant colleges in Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi. It will also reimburse the plaintiffs' and their lawyers for a portion of the costs associated with the case. The company said that under the terms of the settlement agreement it can't disclose how much that will cost. In November, Monsanto agreed to pay about $2.4 million to settle other lawsuits related to the incident. Most of the money will go into a fund to pay farmers in Washington, Oregon and Idaho who sold soft white wheat between May 30 and Nov. 30, 2013. The lawsuits relate to the discovery of genetically modified wheat on a farm in Oregon in May 2013. The wheat had not been approved, and after the discovery, Japan and South Korea temporarily suspended some wheat orders. The European Union called for tougher testing of shipments from the U.S. The company said one class action lawsuit remains active. That suit involves farmers in Arkansas, and Monsanto said it hopes to resolve that litigation soon.

Monsanto Announces Settlement with Farmers over Genetically-Modified Wheat

Monsanto (MON) reached settlement agreement with wheat farmers in seven U.S. states over lawsuits relating to genetically-modified wheat discovered in May 2013 in a farm in Eastern Oregon. The lawsuits also relate to temporary limits on exports of soft white wheat that were imposed following the discovery of the genetically-modified wheat. Under the terms of the settlement, Monsanto did not admit any liability but agreed to donate $50,000 to agricultural schools at land-grant universities in each state to further the interests of wheat farmers and the wheat industry. The settlement agreement applies to wheat farmers in Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi but does not resolve claims that remain pending by wheat farmers in Arkansas.
