jury has awarded a southeast Missouri peach grower 15 million dollars in
compensatory damages and 250 Million in punitive damages in its dicamba drift
case against Monsanto and BASF.
The trial concluded
Saturday which meant the gag-order was lifted. Monsanto Attorney Chris Hohn said
after the trial, “I think it goes without saying that Monsanto is very
disappointed in the jury’s verdict and we will be appealing.”
Hohn told reporters Saturday that (Bayer)Monsanto has great empathy for owner Bill Bader but there was no concrete evidence showing anything on his peach farm related to Xtendimax.
