The Supreme Court of Western Australia recently had to adjudicate a claim for economic loss which an organic farmer in Western Australia claimed had been lost because of the harvesting practices of a neighbouring GM farmer. This is the first reported case of GM damages litigation between farmers. Previous litigation has been between a farmer and the supplier of GM seed and between a farmer and the government instrumentality which had approved GM cultivation.
