Yes, and as a French woman, I must admit that for once I am pretty proud to be French! This hasn't happened to me for a very long time...about 5 years? ;-)

I'm proud of them too, and I'm American! Wish I could be proud of the American Justice System, but there's no such thing anymore!

Monsanto = evil empire. It would not hurt my feelings if they were sued to the point they went out of business.

this is the best news ever. We however are not allowed to ban it, yet are responsible any adverse effects.

Hooray for the French - and may the verdict be held up on appeal and no further appeal be allowed!

Thank goodness there is somewhere in the world where Monsanto can't win. Good for the French. Now if only they could get them for Frankenfood.
