Parties Continue To Seek Settlement In Lawsuit Against Monsanto

wikipedia.org

No agreement has been reached yet to settle remaining claims in lawsuits over the discovery of genetically engineered Monsanto wheat in an Oregon field in 2013.

All of the lawsuits from across the country have been consolidated in Kansas.

A joint status report filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Kansas says the parties have been exchanging settlement offers.

The last offer from farmer plaintiffs is under consideration by St. Louis-based Monsanto.

The filing says the parties will continue to discuss an amicable resolution, but again urges the court to vacate its earlier order staying court proceedings.
