EU to pay Pioneer's costs in GM crop lawsuit

An EU Court has ordered the European Commission to pay Pioneer Hi-Bred International's costs in the company's lawsuit over delays in the approval process for genetically modified crops. The case concerned the DuPont seed subsidiary's application for cultivation of Dow AgroSciences'/ DuPont's insect-resistant and glufosinate-tolerant 1507 maize. The EU Court of First Instance acknowledged the delay but decided there was no need to adjudicate on the claim as the Commission had since completed the procedural step concerned.
