Jury awards Monsanto $1B in patent case vs DuPont
Jury awards Monsanto $1 billion in patent-infringement case against DuPont
By The Associated Press

ST. LOUIS (AP) A jury has awarded Monsanto $1 billion in a patent-infringement trial against rival DuPont.

The trial in U.S. district court in St. Louis centered on whether DuPont infringed on Monsanto's patent for developing genetically modified seeds that can withstand the weed killer Roundup.

The jury determined that a subsidiary of The DuPont Co., based in Wilmington, Del., willfully violated St. Louis-based Monsanto Co.'s so-called Roundup Ready technology.



DuPont says it plans to appeal the verdict and expects it to be overturned.
