Appellate (Appeal) Court

CFS and a broad coalition of farmworkers, farmers, and conservationists, file a federal lawsuit against the EPA over its January 2020 re-approval of glyphosate. On Dec. 17, 2020, CFS files the opening arguments and evidence, showing how EPA ignored glyphosate's health risks, including cancer risks, to farmworkers and farmers exposed during spraying, disregarded glyphosate's ecological impacts and failed to account for the costs to farmers from glyphosate-resistant "superweeds" and off-field drift damage.
