It’s no secret that the typical advertisement is made to show the product at hand in the most favorable light possible. However, when the scales tip from “favorable light” to the perception of being misleading, the potential for problems may arise. One has to go no further than the class action lawsuit called Joshua Rawa, et al. v. Monsanto Company for an example of this situation. The suit was filed over allegations that Monsanto advertised certain Roundup concentrate products as being able to produce more spray than they were actually capable of. However, it is important to make clear that Monsanto disputes the allegations made in the suit along with any wrong doing of any kind. Which side would have come out on top at a trial likely will never be known as the case has come to a pending settlement for a mind-numbing $21.5 MILLION. Those who believe they may be eligible for compensation can find out for sure by reviewing the information found under the How do I know if I am a Class Member? section on the notice received (always make sure to confirm eligibility before moving forward with the filing process).
