Gilles-Éric Séralini, biologist and researcher at the University of Caen, is suing journalists Patrick Cohen, Géraldine Woessner and host Mac Lesggy for defamation, having described his scientific study in 2019, the results of which concluded that Monsanto's Roundup and NK603 GMO corn were toxic, as "misleading" or "fraudulent". "This trial is the eighth of its kind, and all of Gilles-Eric Séralini's accusers have been convicted to date", according to the Secrets Toxiques collective.

On 17 October 2023, the Tribunal dismissed the application.
