- The battle over GMO food has moved quickly from the ballot box to the courtroom. The losing sides in elections in two states have filed lawsuits recently.
- Yesterday anti-GMO activists in Oregon sued over 4,600 disputed ballots in an ongoing recount of that state's vote on requiring labels on GMO foods.
- That lawsuit comes several weeks after Monsanto and Dow filed a lawsuit to ban Hawaii's Maui county from implementing a ban on the cultivation of GMO crops that voters approved last month.
Apparently, post-election lawsuits are becoming a bit of a trend. As for Oregon's recount, it looks like the ramifications either way won't be over anytime soon. Meanwhile, California is having its own issues regarding a proposed GMO growing ban in Los Angeles.
