Among other accomplishments, recently Stueve and Schwartz prosecuted the multidistrict litigation against agribusiness giant Syngenta on behalf of American corn growers.  In June 2017, after a three-week trial, the jury returned a $217.7 million verdict in favor of Kansas corn farmers – 100 percent of the compensatory damages requested. This jury verdict was the 10th largest verdict in the country in 2017.  This was the only case against Syngenta to reach a verdict before a global settlement was announced with Syngenta.  In April 2018, the Kansas federal court granted preliminary approval of a $1.51 billion global settlement resolving thousands of cases nationwide against Syngenta. The settlement is the largest in the history of GMO seed litigation.
