Is There A Securities Law Attorney In The House?

August 28, 2020

My daughter ran downstairs with blood on her lip and one of her last baby teeth in hand. She enthusiastically suggested ideas of what the tooth fairy should consider giving her as a grand lifetime finale of fairy gifting. Apparently, the least the fairy could do is gift a red Ford F150 pickup truck that…

Johnson Verdict Upheld Appeal Monsanto

And a word from the juror

July 21, 2020

Happy Dark Days By AOJ Life around our house has been pretty quiet lately, COVID quiet, so I knew when my phone buzzed twice that the decision of the Court Of Appeal in Johnson v Monsanto had come down. This has been such a roller coaster ride for me, a mere juror, that I often wonder how it is…

Monsanto Roundup Settlement Chhabria


July 9, 2020

REJOICE! Judge Chhabria issued an order in the most Chhabria-esque of tones, heavily hinting that the proposed class action settlement plan is a no-go. Now that I know his opinion may vaguely resemble my own, I wish I could have been in the room when he first perused the settlement proposal to hear some of…

It Happened

As AP students of Monsanto trickery, we should have predicted this strategy of feigning intellectual and ethical interest in seeking the “real” scientific answers on Roundup.

Not Your Time To Go

June 6, 2020

It is nearly impossible to write about Roundup as we watch our country in such disarray, experiencing physical and emotional pain unlike anything I’ve seen in my lifetime.  Glyphosate is a water-loving compound. Because of its vast agricultural use, glyphosate collects in the northern tributaries of the Mississippi River and flows south. At the end…

A Note from GG: My family is not one to hold back opinions, and all-hands interventions are not unusual. In the 80s, an intervention pried me from my beloved new Nintendo. Mario had begun to visit me in my dreams, which my mom deemed unhealthy.  In the 90s, the family convened to express their disgust…

Lord What Fools These Mortals Be

July 24, 2019

It’s midsummer.  The sultry hot nights of summer have me lazily distracted. While distressed that foggy Northern California summer days never used to be hot enough to truly be “sultry” until recently, it has been nice to let my mind wander a bit from the nuances of the trials and restock some creativity. I’m also…

About That Monsanto Spy

May 26, 2019

The French and German activists are fighting a more successful fight against Roundup than the Americans are. Don’t get me wrong, there are many Americans who are fighting every single day to free our country’s food from toxic glyphosate. We just don’t seem to get very far – well, until environmental lawyers finally found a…

Get Out of Here

May 13, 2019

As you all know by now, I really like to keep my blog light, because the topic is so grave that it’s something of a coping mechanism. But today, I feel I am in a surreal state of mind. Today’s news headlined an article about whales dying and shoring on the California coast at unprecedented…
