A national nonprofit group is suing UC Davis to comply with requests for public records related to the university’s work on genetically modified organisms, pesticides and its relationship with the agrichemical industry.
Gary Ruskin, co-founder and co-director of U.S. Right to Know said, “We are conducting this investigation of the food and agrichemical industries in an effort to improve the food we eat and the health of all Americans.”
Since Jan. 28, 2015, U.S. Right to Know has filed 17 public-records requests with UCD, the group said in a statement, “but the university has provided a total of merely 751 pages in response to all of these requests, while similar requests at other universities have yielded thousands of pages each.”
The lawsuit was filed on Wednesday in the Yolo County Superior Court against the Regents of the University of California.
