Tran To Nga's lawsuit against Agent Orange manufacturers rejected by French courts

Chester, VT (May 12, 2021) - The High Court in Evry, France ruled that French-Vietnamese Tran To Nga's human injury litigation against 14 multinational chemical manufacturers of Agent Orange was inadmissible. The court determined they have no jurisdiction over the case as the chemical companies were U.S. government contractors.

Nga's landmark case, which named Monsanto (having since been acquired by Bayer) and Dow Chemical, among others, sought damages for the harmful health e�ects of Agent Orange, that was contaminated with Dioxin during the manufacturing process, on three generations of her family as the result of her exposure during the war.
