California Supreme Court declines to hear Monsanto's glyphosate label appeal
Aug. 21, 2018
The California Supreme Court refused to hear Monsanto's appeal to remove glyphosate , a major component of the company's Roundup herbicide, from California's list of chemicals that cause cancer or birth defects. The state had placed glyphosate on the list pursuant to Proposition 65, based on the 2015 determination by the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) that glyphosate is "probably carcinogenic". Monsanto challenged both the constitutionality of the listing process and the integrity of IARC. Center for Food Safety (CFS) intervened in the lawsuit to defend the science-based IARC listing process against Monsanto's anti-science attacks.
