ABSTRACT
The article discusses a court case wherein the Northern District of California declared that the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) infringed the National Environmental Policy ACT (NEPA) by lifting the regulations on genetically engineered (GE) Roundup Ready sugar beets without initially considering the environmental impact of its introduction. The court discarded APHIS's limited understanding of the scope of its duties under NEPA.
