Brazilian court suspends Intacta injunction
A Brazilian court has suspended an injunction that stopped royalty payments to Monsanto for cargoes of soybeans containing its genetically modified insect-resistant and herbicide-tolerant Intacta RR2 Pro (MON87701xMON89788) technology. The Rio Grande do Sul state Tribunal of Justice decision makes the charging of royalties legal. The 16th Civil Court of Porto Alegre District had prohibited in the first instance the collection of 7.5% royalty payments on cargoes of the soybeans. That followed a class action involving several grower and rural workers’ unions.
