Another Kansas Farmer Sues Monsanto

Another Kansas farmer has filed suit against seed giant Monsanto over the discovery of an isolated field of genetically engineered wheat in Oregon.

Harvey County wheat grower Bill Budde sued Monsanto Friday in a lawsuit seeking class-action status. It's at least the third such lawsuit filed in federal court in Kansas against the St. Louis-based company since the field was discovered in May. Similar lawsuits have also been filed in Idaho and Washington state.

Monsanto has said none of the genetically modified wheat entered the commercial market. The company says it has no legal liability in the case.
