The 3rd Circuit Court of Appeal has denied rehearing petitions from three crawfish buyer/processors who in April were stripped by the appeals court of nearly $2 million awarded to them individually by a St. Landry Parish civil jury in a lawsuit against Bayer Crop Science for massive losses related to the use of a Bayer insecticide. The five-judge panel denied the petitions without comment. For the back story on the lawsuit, see the April 13 INDsider report, “Jury award in crawfish case goes to seed.”
