This case is being handled by Watts and a fellow partner and there is a good chance that he will carry the day in court. Going by his track record, Watts rarely losses his cases and this includes some of the high profile cases that he has dealt with and won. This case that involves the seed supplying company supplying farmers with GMO corn seeds seems to be very strong. Watts has quite a great chance of again scooping a win out of it just like it’s a norm.
The issue arose when the Chinese government rejected corn imports from the United States of America after finding out that the seeds contained a chemical that proves that they must have been genetically modified. On the other hand, American farmers claim to have had no knowledge of the genetically modified seedlings and none of them had ordered for the same. As such, it turns out that Syngenta acted on its own consent without consulting or even informing the farmers about it. This is a gross violation of the normal practice in the business. As a result of it, farmers incurred losses as their products were rejected by their largest market.
America is a major exporter of corn and its greatest market is the Chinese market. When the Chinese government rejected corn imports from America, all farmers where affected even those who do not get their seed from Syngenta. This crippled the market and led to unimaginable losses. Now the farmers with the help of Watts up with their guns blazing for the losses they have incurred due to a company’s act of negligence’s. Syngenta cannot justify its actions and the farmers are most likely to benefit from the compensation that they are seeking through a legal process. As Syngenta struggles to make a case out of their act of negligence, there is a lot that is at stake.
