Bayer Settles Liberty GM Rice Case in Texas

Bayer settled a case for $290,000 brought by eight Texas farmers.  This is the first time it has settled a case rather than contest the lawsuit.

Bayer faces thousands of claims in the U.S. from rice farmers alleging that its BT gene-modified (GM) LibertyLink rice contaminated U.S. exports and U.S. farmers suffered damages when export markets closed and prices dropped.
