At Reuters, Carey Gillam reports on a petition for certiorari filed recently by a group of farmers, seed companies, and public interest organizations seeking review of its case against agribusiness giant Monsanto. The petitioners have asked the lower courts to enjoin Monsanto from suing them if their fields accidentally become contaminated with the company’s genetically altered crops, but the lower courts declined to do so on the ground that Monsanto has already promised not to sue.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose comments in recent interviews have garnered significant coverage and commentary, will appear tonight at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, where Jeffrey Rosen will interview her. The event is sold out but will be livestreamed at the Center’s website.
