A Big Prop 65 Victory For Chemical Industry In Monsanto Case

Law360 (July 17, 2020, 2:33 PM EDT) -- On June 22, U.S. District Judge William B. Shubb of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California granted Monsanto's motion for summary judgment and imposed a permanent injunction on the enforcement of Proposition 65 for glyphosate (the active ingredient in Roundup) in the closely followed case National Association of Wheat Growers v. Becerra.

The ruling is important to many in the chemicals and agricultural world. An appeal is expected, and if the decision is upheld, it will set a significant precedent in the Prop 65 world and deal a huge blow to the state of California.
