Organic Groups, Farmers File Preemptive Lawsuit Against Monsanto to Protect Themselves from Inevitable Destruction by GMOs

Filed by the Public Patent Foundation (PUBPAT) on behalf of the plaintiffs, the suit seeks judicial protection against the inevitable lawsuits Monsanto will file against non-GM and organic farmers when its genetically-modified (GM) seeds and other materials contaminate their fields.
