‘When biotech told Vermont they would sue the state in order to reverse the voters’ wish to have GMO foods labeled, the state decided to prepare for the worst-case scenario. They started a fund to help them fight Monsanto and the biotech bullies in court.
This past week, the Vermont Attorney General filed a request with the U.S. District Court asking them to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) and other industry groups challenging the state’s new GMO labeling law.
Due to the hard work of activists around the country, Vermont now has Act 120, which requires the labeling of food made with genetically modified organisms. Five different plaintiffs that want to see the Act overturned are now challenging it for its constitutionality. Vermont Attorney General William Sorrell said in his court filing that the Act should stand.’
