Court

February 26, 2018
Partially Positive
Plaintiffs’ request for a preliminary injunction enjoining defendants from listing glyphosate as a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer under California Health & Safety Code § 25249.8 is denied. Plaintiffs’ request for a preliminary injunction enjoining the warning requirement of California Health & Safety Code § 25249.6 as to glyphosate is granted.
State law

Plaintiffs bring this suit to prevent the State of California from mandating cancer warnings concerning the herbicide glyphosate on a wide variety of food, agricultural, industrial, and lawn and garden products. The judge partially agrees with the plaintiffs and orders the State of California not to implement this labelling until the final resolution of the dispute.
