Steve Marsh will appeal his GM contamination case

After losing his case against his GM-growing neighbour in May, Steve Marsh has decided to appeal the decision.

"The Safe Food Foundation welcomes Steve Marsh's decision to appeal the decision against him in the WA Supreme Court. He lodged his appeal on Wednesday 18 June and the appeal will be heard in the next six to twelve months before the court of appeal made up of three judges.

The Safe Food Foundation wants to see legislation that requires GM farmers to meet strict rules designed to stop contamination. A compensation fund paid for by the GM industry is needed to pay out damages suffered from GM contamination where no individual GM farmer can be identified as being at fault."
