Monsanto suits go to Kansas

Agriculture giant will consolidate multiple suits regarding GMO negligence

Monsanto Co. is no stranger to controversy, and after a number of farms in Oregon found a strain of its genetically modified wheat growing on farms unbeknownst to farmers, it was thrust into the limelight again. Now, the suits that were filed against the agricultural company will be consolidated in a Kansas City District court.

“At least 16 lawsuits will be sent to U.S. District Judge Kathryn Vratil in Kansas City for pretrial evidence gathering, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation ruled,” reports Bloomberg. The ruling was made on Oct.16. The cases are being moved to be closer to Monsanto HQ.
