    Agreed, Matthew Seigel. The parasitic plaintiffs‘ bar seeks desperately to trap deep-pocket corporate defendants in state courts where judges are generally more inclined to favor plaintiffs and their often fanciful if scientifically groundless theories of liability. In fairness, Delaware‘s judges are known to be more evenhanded than many in states where trial judges are elected largely with plaintiffs’ bar money, but Monsanto and every other corporate defendant is wise to do whatever they can within the law to escape state courts and litigate cases in federal courts whenever possible – particularly in mass tort and class action contexts.

    I think this article would be a lot more impactful if it explained why large corporate defendants, such as Monsanto, want to remove cases against them to federal court!
