Court Opinion in Lawsuit Challenging EPA’s Reapproval of Glyphosate Herbicide

Legal Filings
June 17, 2022

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down portions of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s decision to re-approve continued, widespread use of glyphosate, a widely used herbicide commonly known as Roundup. EPA will have to redo parts of its analysis relating to cancer risk, as well as the ecological effects of glyphosate’s use. That revised analysis may require significant new restrictions on glyphosate’s use.
