Successful Legal Outcome in Hawaii

On November 18, 2016, a federal appeals court upheld lower court decisions striking down several county ordinances in Hawaii that had attempted to regulate either pesticides or genetically engineered crops inconsistently with Hawaii state law. The court found that the State’s regulation of pesticides and genetically engineered crops was intended to be uniform across the state and that the county ordinances conflicted with this uniform approach.
