The court's order suggests that while the justices want the lower court to take another look at the case given the court's most recent ruling, the justices themselves aren't ready to jump into the contentious debate for now.

Landmark lawsuit claims Monsanto hid cancer danger of weedkiller for decades | 22 May 2018 | With cancer spread through most of his body, doctors say DeWayne Johnson probably has just months to live. Johnson, a husband and father of three in California, hopes to survive long enough to make Monsanto take the blame for his fate.
