Monsanto Guilty of Chemical Poisoning In France

"French court decided today that GMO crops monster Monsanto is guilty of chemically poisoning a French farmer. The grain grower, Paul Francois, says he developed neurological problems such as memory loss and headaches after being exposed to Monsanto’s Lasso weedkiller back in 2004"

Good news from the French court in Lyon who found that Monsanto did not properly warn farmers of the dangers of using their pesticides. Of course I am rooting for the farmers and see this as a positive trend as the nasty and aggressively litigious Monsanto usually wins.

In this country of course we have a big problem, former Monsanto legal counsel Clarence Thomas sits on this countries highest court and in his first ruling which gave Monsanto the right to own and trademark nature that he did not see fit to recuse himself from.  Currently Monsanto is back trying to get the highest court to give them a favorable ruling in there third attempt in their case against Geerston Seeds.  Of course Mr. Thomas has not recused himself, because, well why would you actually do something actually legal and respectful when you are a supreme court justice whose seat on that court was bought for you by...what was the name of that company? Oh right: Monsanto.
