Case Law

The following resources represent a collection of federal and state court decisions relating to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).  While the Center for Agricultural and Shale Law makes every effort to provide all relevant court opinions, this list is not exhaustive.  Furthermore, it may be necessary to view certain decisions via an online legal research database or at the courthouse where an opinion was rendered.


  • Ctr. for Food Safety v. Hamburg, 954 F.Supp.2d 965 (E.D. Cal. 2013).
    • In response to FDA’s failure to finalize rules pursuant to statutory deadlines within FSMA, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California established a new timeline for FDA to finalize FSMA rules.
