Poynter said "the Missouri court was a good choice because of its experience in agri-litigation, including a class-action lawsuit settled in 2011 over genetically modified rice. Bayer, the German seed giant, settled the class-action lawsuit for $750 million, has paid more than $1 billion in damages and attorneys fees." BUT, Bayer is a competitor to Monsanto, so the Missouri court had no pressure applied to it by Monsanto in that rice case. That will not be the case in the dicamba case. It will be in front of hand picked Monsanto judges.
