Shattercane meeting in Willow Tree after class action gains litigation funding

THERE will be another meeting for sorghum growers affected by shattercane, as proceedings gain pace in a class action against a seed supplier.

NSW growers are invited to meet with legal firm Creevey Russell Lawyers at Willow Tree Inn on Thursday, November 16, 5.30pm-7.30pm.

The firm has recently secured litigation funding for a class action against Advanta Seeds Pty Ltd, previously trading as Pacific Seeds.

Shattercane class action to proceed after funding secured

The action is on behalf of growers who used MR43 Elite sorghum seed between 2010 and 2014 and have had a shattercane infestation on their land.

“We are excited to announce we now have funding to proceed with this class action, which will be conducted for group members on a no-win, no-fee basis, and involve no out-of-pocket expenses,” Creevey Russell principal Dan Creevey said.

“If you think you have suffered loss or damage from shattercane caused by the planting of MR43 Elite seed, please come along to the information night to hear from myself and the Creevey Russell team about the action and its progress.”
