Summary proceedings
Glyphosate, Other
Suspension of the order of June 3, 2019 banning pesticides on the territory of the municipality taken by Jean-Yves Senant, Mayor of Antony.
Administrative Court of Appeals of Versailles, France

May 14, 2020
The interim relief judge of the Court of Appeal suspends the execution of the order prohibiting the use of glyphosate. In first instance, the request by the Prefect of Hauts-de-Seine to suspend the execution of the municipal order had been rejected by the Administrative Court of Cergy-Pontoise on 11/25/2019.

The order banning pesticides in the municipality of Antony issued by the mayor is challenged by the prefect of Hauts-de-Seine on the grounds that this measure is not the prerogative of a mayor, but of the Minister of Agriculture. On Nov. 25, 2019, the judge for interim measures decides not to suspend the contested order. The prefect appeals the decision. The appeal hearing takes place on 02/27/2020. On May 14, 2020, the interim relief judge of the Versailles Administrative Court of Appeal suspends the execution of the order by the mayor of Antony.
