JACKSON COUNTY, Ore. – Jackson County’s recently passed GMO ban may soon be debated in court. And according to people involved in that potential lawsuit, it would be filed on behalf of a Jackson County farmer.
The Oregonians for Food and Shelter, a special interest group in Salem, confirms they are considering a lawsuit, and are working with a farmer in the county who might become the plaintiff. They declined to identify the farmer.
They say lawsuit is not definite, and offered little comment other than the fact that they’re confident they have a strong legal argument.
Anti GMO group Our Family Farms Coalition is already raising money for a legal defense fund.
