Monsanto Co. v. Hardeman

U.S. Supreme Court

Question(s) Presented

1. Whether FIFRA preempts a state-law failure-to-warn claim where the warning cannot be added to a product without EPA approval and EPA has repeatedly concluded that the warning is not appropriate.

2. Whether the Ninth Circuit’s standard for admitting expert testimony—which departs from other circuits’ standards—is inconsistent with this Court’s precedent and Federal Rule of Evidence 702.
