On Monday Monsanto Co. won another legal battle with U.S. organic growers as an appeals court dismissed the growers’ efforts to stop the company from suing farmers whose crops have been contaminated by patented biotech genes. The U.S. Court of Appeals affirmed a previous ruling which stated the farmers had no reason to try to block Monsanto from suing them because the company had promised it would not do so. However, b­­etween 1997 and April 2010, Monsanto filed 144 patent-infringement lawsuits against farmers. In Monday’s ruling, the court noted that records show a majority of conventional seed samples have become contaminated by Monsanto’s Roundup resistance strain.
