courtmallet1 210x131 Judge Throws out Organic Farmers Recent Case Against Monsanto

For years Monsanto has been trying to take out American family farms and dominate the agricultural industry with their genetically modified seeds. Between 1997 and 2010, 144 lawsuits were filed by Monsanto against American family farmers, with an additional 700 being settled out of court. Recently, farmers made a firm decision to institute massive resistance against the biotech corporation by launching their own landmark lawsuit against Monsanto for contaminating crop fields with GMOs. The landmark case has now been thrown out by a New York federal court.

Judge Sides with Monsanto

In a lawsuit originally filed in March of 2011, the Public Patent Foundation represented various individuals and organizations threatened by Monsanto and their GMO crops. Family farmers, farming organizations, and seed businesses all took a stand in a case known as the Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association (OSGATA) et al v. Monsanto. Seeing as Monsanto is stampeding over much of the farmland with their questionable and dangerous genetic manipulations, it isn’t surprising to see a case safeguarding farmers from Monsanto’s own lawsuits while also disputing the company’s patents on GMO seeds.

Unfortunately, the case seems to be unfolding in Monsanto’s favor. In fact, a New York court yesterday dismissed the lawsuit. The Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association was hoping that the judge would disallow the use of Monsanto’s seeds as they drift into organic fields, but instead the judge found the plaintiffs’ allegations to be “unsubstantiated … given that not one single plaintiff claims to have been so threatened.” In addition, the ruling said the plaintiffs overstated the magnitude of Monsanto’s patent enforcement.

Beyond whatever happens with this suit, there are some very legitimate issues behind it,” Doug Gurian-Sherman, a senior scientist with the Union of Concerned Scientists, tells The Salt. “There is already a significant burden to organic food production, and there is more coming. It raises the question: Is it possible for organic agriculture to survive in the face of GM crops?”

Following current trends, genetically modified foods will makeup the majority of the future food supply if a change is not made. Statistics show how GMO crops and ingredients have skyrocketed in even the past few years.

    All the “Jew bashing” in the comments… all it does is de-legitimize the primary issue at hand.

    News flash anti-Semites! If you believe it’s “the Jews” than you have clearly not been paying very good attention.

    Graft, corruption and avarice are not bound by race, creed or color.

  • Ken O’Neill

    …and Jewish, defending Jewish interests to the detriment of all the rest of us ‘goyim’.

  • Avanti

    By the way, don't make confuse with Jewish and devilish Zionists; see http://www.UKUSA.ORG and try to read the book "The Synagogue of Satan – Andrew C. Hitchcock".

  • Avanti

    I have to touch the same key: if some judge(s) is(are) against many obvious issues presented by knowledgeable people — something we have to do to minimize our lost of time and energy. Investigate if those judge received some compensation(s), and breaking the law. Then we can eliminate that one(those) by disqualification. Please, try to get better information on FULLDISCLOSURE.COM or ask Dr. Richard I. Fine.

    • glittermama

      Of coarse they receive compensation. Monsanto will do anything to sell this crap ! Most of out judges today are just as evil as our government. There is no recourse in America today. It's all about money, greed and power. We are so screwed !

  • DEAN BERRY MINISTRIE

    PATRIOTS, WE NEED TO BOMBARD THIS "JUDGE" WITH FAXES. S/he just ruled against the farmers who sued Monsanto. If you can believe it, Monsanto has sued farmers for patent infringement – AND WON! – because some of Monsanto's seeds blew into these farmers' fields and mingled with their produce. These farmers filed a counter-lawsuit against Monsanto. BUT TO A "JEW" THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS A CONFLICT OF INTEREST. NOR IS IT CONSIDERED INJUSTICE TO SCREW A GENTILE IN COURT (Read the "jewish" talmud for confirmation of this fact: http://100777.com/protocols.). "Jewish" "judge" NAOMI BUCHWALD didn't hesitate to rule in favor or her "jewish" comrades at Monsanto where BILL GATES IS A MAJOR STOCKHOLDER. Her kind aren't even hiding it anymore; THEY'RE ACTIVELY PILLAGING THE GOYIM (HUMAN CATTLE – GENTILES) MORE EVERYDAY. Let our judeo-commie government know they're being assailed from every direction, and WILL BE until they pack up and move to their "homeland". Read about this case at: http://tinyurl.com/JewsRuleInFavorOfJews. Then fax this throwback Buchwald at (212) 637-2390.*

  • Bill Reynolds

    Does anyone know the name of the judge that ruled against the farmers? Which court does he/she/it preside in?

    • Listens

      Hi,

      I don't post often and it is because I don't believe there is much effect in doing so.

      But . . . I have been listening to a research group on the talkshoe.com network – AIB County Assembly. They have, through actual court cases discovered that a knowledgeable man/woman can move an action into a true Article III constitutional court. Totally different rules there. Attorneys have little force in this venue if they can argue at all. It appears that every federal (and local subsidiaries of this venue) judge can also function as a judge for a

      district court of the United States

      Please note the lower case "district court". Keeping an action in this venue may take persistence but can be done. Most attorneys will move your action (on your behalf supposedly) into the United States District Court (often all caps). This is not the same court venue but it can be the exact same room and judge. This is also a territorial court, not an article III court.

      Monsanto will have a difficult time defending it's actions in the 'district court of the United States' instead of the usual 'judge rules' in the USDC.

      If you wish to know more about the Rod Class team have a listen to the February 28, 2012 call.

      As long as the prosecuting and defense attorneys rule the clients actions you will not find yourself in the proper court. Their response will be 'it's the same court' or 'it doesn't make any difference.'

      Best wishes.

      The judge in the case was: Federal Judge Naomi Buchwald. She ruled to dismiss the case denying over 50 plaintiffs who represented over 300,000 farmers a hearing. If we can show she was influenced it will help to take Monsanto down.

  • http://www.oregonshout.com stupidamerkin

    My question is what connections does this "federal Judge" have with Monsanto and what does he stand to gain to obviously rule against those he has signed an oath to protect? It was nothing but another dog and pony show and every time you deal with these fascist corporate systems, most call courts and the justice system,they protect their own. Call it as it is, the justus system. Gee, Monsanto also now has it's own military called Black Water. Isn't that special?

    Realize that The American Bar Association is a branch of the London Lawyers Guild, which is a trade union of England's attorneys. Illinois was the first state government they legally usurped. California came next, and the presidential appointments of judges sympathetic to the destruction of the U.S. endgame have likewise been based on this prerequisite. To get favorable press and CFRtv coverage during your campaign, you must bow down to Briuannia, who controls ALL nationwide corporate news, and thus, election coverage. Involved in this endeavor, since politicians require the approval of the Associated Press and the FOREIGN BASED ENTITY called the Council on Foreign Relations, are most all of the self- centered pigs in congress who sell us out at every opportunity and drive up our debt to the Rothschild bank. They also vote to kill you and your children in a dozen different ways. This works with Obama, the lobotomy president, Bush41 and Bush43 by virtue of their leadership in the English royal's Skull and Bones society, Bill Clinton the Rhodes Scholar( another program dedicated to the destruction of the U.S.), and the congress, which sports an approval rating among Americans of less than 8%. We have been conned and we need to TAKE OUT THE TRASH.

    Remember, when you hide your head in the sand, your bum is way up in the air.

    • Chris

      The CFR is 80% Jewish. The queen of England is Jewish. The Rothschild's are Jewish. Cecil Rhodes was financed by Jewish Bankers. Bill Clinton's daughter married a Jewish bankers. The parasite undermining humanity is Judaism

      Try reading the Talmud and The Protocols 0f the Elders of Zion.

      • Bill Reynolds

        You are absolutely correct! Kuddos to you for presenting the truth that the Jewish controlled news media attempts to hide. Slowly, the dots are being connected!

      The properly ratified 13th Amendment which is the last properly ratified Supreme Law of the Land reads: “If any Citizen of the United States shall accept, claim, receive or retain any Title of Nobility or Honour, or shall, without the Consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, Pension, Office or Emolument of any kind whatever, from any Emperor, King, Prince or foreign Power, such Person shall cease to be a Citizen of the United States, and shall be incapable of holding any Office of Trust or Profit under them, or either of them.”

      By joining the BAR, which is a private club headquartered in London, and in accepting the title “Esquire”, BAR lawyers loose citizenship and the right to hold any office in government. This is the original 13th amendment

    • http://www.oregonshout.com stupidamerkin

      The BAR and all it's members are all foreign agents. Nothing more and certainly nothing less. Every facet of our lives now has an attorney standing behind it some where.

      What needs to be done is to abolish the bar or else pass legislation to exclude all bar members from any public office involving making any decisions concerning the public.

      As long as there are politicians, there will always be suffering, misery, death and wars. Most if not all of these self serving trader puppets in the District of Criminals should be arrested and tried for conspiracy to commit treason, but it will continue to be business as usual.

      “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”

      Marcus Tullius Cicero

      • glittermama

        … and this is exactly America today. Too many enemies working from within with absolutely no conscience at all. They are a rotten bunch for sure who stink is really starting to get to me !

    The courts will NEVER offer relief for cases like this. Judges are nothing but low life TERRORISTS controlled by mass murdering politicians.

    • George

      Fascist corrupt judges are the bane of civilization. I wish I could say how I really felt and the actions that must be taken if America is to survive the corporate destruction of our lives.

  • Emery

    The Judiciary is corrupt like everything else in America. You can't even get a judge to hear Obama's birth case. Between Masonic orders, sexual misconduct and good old plain bribery the judiciary is just as corrupt as the legislation and executive branches. America has become an evil empire run by corporations like Monsanto.

    • jerry bolduc

      You hit the nail right on the head…WE, THE PEOPLE have allowed our political system to be entirely usurped and overrun by people who do not have our best interests at heart.

      What to do? It's gonna be a long, hard slog now because we have ignored our responsibilities for so long…but we have to run for political offices at the grass roots level…city councilmen…local government…these are elected positions that we can run for and WIN w/o spendi9ng a fortune to do so.

      The powers that be have built their foundation on controlling local politics…we have to take it back if we really care about the direction the country has taken. The executive, legislative and judicial branches have all been infested with people who, in many, many instances, began their careers in these local political offices that we tend to ignore. A city court judge elected for TEN YEARS!!! What is this all about? 10 years and the guy probably was a marginally capable lawyer to begin with!! Couldn't make it as a lawyer so he ran for judge and was elected for TEN 'effin' YEARS!!! How many of these are sitting in their unruffled robes wielding powers that they could never wield otherwise!!!

      I guess you can summarize this mess by saying that we're getting the form of government that we deserve! Only problem is our kids don't deserve the mess and corruption that we're leaving to them.

  • Tom Thumb

    France bans fracking AND Monsanto's GMO's and the US kisses Monsanto's evil ***. Which country cares about and protects its people? France. The US cares about and protect its OWNERS.

  • Ratt

    Hey, if bugs won't eat it … it's not real food.

    Have no fear though, Monsanto and their apologists will never have to eat the GMO they've invented …. that's for us to eat. They, the elite and their families, will have plenty of organically grown real food to last their lifetimes … and then some.

  • Anonymous

    How disturbing

  • Tricia

    Seems like the judge was afraid to go against Monsanto who most likely paid him off.

  • TIBIfan

    So cool! Another good news! For Monsanto…

  • Amy

    I hope everyone associated with and pulling for Monsanto gets the cancer and other terminal diseases they deserve. Karma will get each and every one of the selfish bastards

    • Fale

      Wishing cancer on others isnt good for karma either. Sheesh.

      • Ashton

        Wishing that Karma works its course, doesnt affect your karma.

  • Deb

    Amazing!!!! Horrible news.
