Agent Orange: French court rejects claim against Bayer
The court in the Paris suburb of Evry said it did not have the jurisdiction to judge a case involving the wartime actions of the US government, the ruling said.

The case was brought forward by Tran To Nga, a ["]French["] woman of Vietnamese origin. The defendants included US agrochemical firm Monsanto, now owned by German giant Bayer.

Military veterans from the US, Australia and Korea previously won compensation for the after-effects of Agent Orange. But a verdict in favor of a ["]Vietnamese["] victim would have set a precedent.
