Ruth McQuade '79, an attorney in Shepherdstown, WV, filed a notice to appeal the $93 million settlement in a class-action lawsuit against Monsanto. McQuade represents three class members and filed the notice in the West Virginia Supreme Court clerk's office Wednesday morning.
The notice of appeal is the first step under the new rules of appellate
procedure adopted by the state Supreme Court in December 2010. The high
court will decide whether to hear the case.
