Update on U.S. District Court Activity by Sugar Industry Biotech Council

August 13, 2010

Today, August 13, 2010, the United States District Court for the Northern District of California held a hearing in the Roundup Ready sugar beet litigation. The court is considering how the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Monsanto v. Geertson Seed impacts the future planting of Roundup Ready sugar beets. The court did not immediately issue a ruling, but took the matter under submission. The Sugar Industry Biotech Council cannot speculate as to how or when the court will rule.
