Federal judge gives city of Spokane, WA, the go ahead to sue Monsanto


(NaturalNews) GMO king Monsanto has another legal problem heading its way.

A federal judge has said that the city of Spokane, Washington’s lawsuit against the agro-chemical behemoth over pollution in the Spokane River can move ahead.

Last year, the city sued the St. Louis-based Monsanto, alleging that the company knew for decades that it was making and selling chemicals that were dangerous to people and to the environment, The Associated Press reported.

The Spokesman-Review added that Spokane, in conjunction with a few other cities, is trying to force Monsanto to clean up contamination allegedly caused by the polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) the company manufactured.

Meanwhile, Monsanto has asked a federal judge to dismiss the lawsuit based upon eight separate claims, including that too much time has gone by for the city to file its suit. (Click to Article)
