    Despite the mass of independent scientific evidence to the contrary a jury (who probably didn't understand the technicalities) decides based on the issues of one person to deprive the rest of us of one of the most useful pesticides currently manufactured - crazy, totally crazy!

    I don't think there was a jury involved in that one.

    But there was here:
    https://www.theguardian.com/business...johnson-ruling

    What I find most astonishing here is that he started the job as groundskeeper in 2012 and was diagnosed in 2014. Cancer isn't something that develops quickly after exposure to a carcinogen; it usually takes many years or even decades. But hey, it's Monsanto, so they must be guilty....
    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    The UK media reported it as a jury decision - incorrectly it seems.

    Yet another example of media misreporting in the UK?

    Yep. Going back to the article, it was a Federal Appeals Court. That's a panel of judges, not a jury. More specifically, it was the Ninth Circuit, which is one level below the US Supreme Court. It is also often referred to as the "Ninth Circus" or the "Nutty Ninth" because it has historically leaned far left in its decisions, and it seems to believe it can make law instead of just interpreting law, as seems to be happening in this case. As a result, there's quite a history of its decisions being overturned on further appeal to the Supreme Court.

    One thing that puzzles me is why the Ninth thinks it can command the EPA to do anything at all outside of the nine or so western states over which their court has jurisdiction...?
