November 26, 2014 Opinion or Order Filing 70 ORDER GRANTING PLAINTIFFS' MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT ON CLAIMS ONE AND TWO OF PLAINTIFFS' COMPLAINT re 28 - Signed by Judge BARRY M. KURREN on 11/26/2014. "In light of the foregoing, the Court grants partial summary judgment on Claim 1 for express preemption under federal law, but only to the extent that express federal preemption applies to the Ordinance's ban on field testing of genetically engineered plants that are "plant pests" or "noxious weeds" and are regulated under 7 C.F.R.

"Accordingly, the Court enjoins the County from further implementing or enforcing Ordinance 13-121, codified as Hawaii County Code §§ 14-128 et seq. This Order is dispositive o f this case.
