USDA slammed by the Courts over GM crops?

I'm not sure if you read my comments regarding Food Safety here in the USA, but if you did, you might find this new article interesting:
"In a surprising development that may well stump the further approval of GMOs, Federal Courts in the US have ruled against the Department of Agriculture (USDA) in three successive cases for failing to carry out proper environment impact assessment, making the original approvals of GM crops illegal." (link to full article)
Like CAFOs, GM crops are part of what the Agricultural industry likes to call "modern farming" that have also brought several negative environmental consequences.

I've mentioned before in this Blog about the years ahead being years of accountability and responsibility. Could it be unfolding before us now?
