(KNX 1070) -- A federal court has ordered the Trump administration to ban a widely used farm pesticide that environmentalists say damages the nervous systems of farm workers, their children, and even consumers.

It is used widely in California where farmers say it is a critical tool in controlling pests that threaten crops.

A 2 to 1 decision overturned Scott Pruitt's denial to ban it, now has to ban it within 60 days.
