Oral argument in organic seed growers’ appeal slated for Jan. 10

The Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C., will hear the Appeal of Dismissal in the Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association et al versus Monsanto at 10 a.m. Jan. 10, 2013. OSGATA et al versus Monsanto challenges the validity of Monsanto’s transgenic seed patents and seeks preemptive court protection for farmers when Monsanto seed trespasses onto their farms and contaminates their crops. OSGATA has re-established its Farmer Travel Fund in order to raise funds to enable family farmers to travel to the oral argument court session. Details are available on Wood Prairie Farm’s website.
