Judge Rules In Mums’ Favour

Judge Rules In Mums’ Favour

AgResearch’s attempt to scare off NZ Mothers’ (MAdGE) by demanding they pay $30,000 for security for costs before they have their case heard in the High Court failed miserably today.

Justice Ellen France said no security for costs was required and declined their application in her 17 page judgement; in which she noted that MAdGEs’ case has “merit”.

Spokesperson for Madge Kate Woodd said “The New Zealand High Court has recognised that Madge is an organisation with credibility and its concerns on behalf of New Zealanders’s must be taken seriously. We are delighted with the decision and we are looking forward to our case being determined by the Court in June.”

MAdGE is a rapidly growing network of politically non-aligned women who have decided to actively resist the use of genetically engineered organisms in our food and on our land.
