Court

Sabine Grataloup had weeded a riding career with Glyper, a glyphosate-based weedkiller, while she didn't know she was pregnant. She attributes her son Theo's serious health problems to his exposure in utero to the product and asks that the responsibility of the manufacturer Monsanto and the dealer Novajardin be recognized
