Holding: The Supreme Court held that a lower court judge had incorrectly ruled when he banned the planting of genetically engineered because of claims they might be environmentally unsafe. The case was sent back to the Animal Protection and health Inspection Service for them to determine if they want to pursue a partial deregulation of the alfalfa seeds.
Judgment: Reversed and Remanded, 7-1, in an opinion by Justice Samuel Alito on June 21, 2010. Justice Stevens dissented, and Justice Breyer took no part.
