Friday, February 15, the Supreme Court granted Obama’s Solicitor General the opportunity to argue in support of Monsanto’s patents for 10 minutes.

While the New York Times ran an article on Saturday, February 16 about Farmer Bowman, the article failed to include the fact that on the previous day, Friday, February 15, the Supreme Court granted Obama’s Solicitor General the opportunity to argue in support of Monsanto’s patents for 10 minutes. The oral arguments are now 40 minutes for Monsanto and only 30 minutes for Farmer Bowman. Justice may be blind, but time is of the essence.

We hope to see some of you tomorrow morning on the sidewalk outside of the Supreme Court for what has been dubbed the “Be-In for Bowman.” Please RSVP and invite your friends!
