Professor Daryl Lim
He is serving as a co-consultant to the American Antitrust Institute on its amicus brief to the United States Supreme Court in the case of Vernon Hugh Bowman v. Monsanto Co. The Indiana farmer was sued by Monsanto for patent infringement. This case raises important issues involving the post-sale rights of patent owners and could affect the way agricultural and biotechnology industries operate.
Lim was invited to consult on the brief, in part because of his American Bar Association-published article “Rebooting the Bean,” which discusses the case. The article also has been featured in the ‘Top Ten Downloads’ of a number of journal categories on the Social Science Research Network.

Two American citizens attempted to sue former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld over allegations that they were tortured by the U.S. military in Iraq.
