WAIMEA, KAUAI RESIDENTS WIN FIRST ROUND ON CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST BIOTECH. THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING!
A federal court jury awarded a total of $507,090 in damages to 15 Waimea residents who say they can't enjoy their homes because of red dust from test fields operated by DuPont Pioneer on Kauai.
The verdict said DuPont Pioneer failed to follow generally accepted agricultural and management practices from Dec. 13, 2009, to Dec. 31, 2011, and that the "seriousness of the harm to each plaintiff outweighs the public benefit of Pioneer's farming operation."
