Information Regarding Lawsuits Against Monsanto For Roundup

It is alleged that Monsanto knew for over 30 years that there was a link between Roundup cancer and use. However, it opted to not let the general public know. Instead, the business said the weed killer was as safe as table salt. It claimed that using appropriate usage, Roundup was non-toxic to both pets and people.

But, documents filed in court assert that Monsanto moved to great lengths to hide the facts from the public. The business hit out at studies that showed the threat of the product and spread misinformation instead.

Cancer has become the most serious side effect of prolonged exposure to Roundup. Some 70,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma annually. In 90 percent of those cases, the patients have B-Cell lymphoma while around ten per cent have T-Cell lymphoma.

What Are the Settlement Amounts in Roundup Cases so Far?

Thus far, Monsanto has lost three Roundup cases in court and the payoff figures have been substantial. The largest payoff went to an older couple who developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma following using Roundup for more than thirty years. Among the couple’s attorneys, Brent Wisner, said the verdict was a very clear sign that Monsanto needed to alter its behavior.

Bayer vowed to appeal the verdict. It argued that the plaintiffs relied upon a WHO report that differed from the rest of the research on Roundup. That statement sought to make it crystal clear that glyphosate didn’t cause cancer.

The second-largest award came from the first trial where a school groundskeeper was the plaintiff. His attorney was successful in arguing that his cancer was due to Roundup and Ranger Pro (another Monsanto herbicide). He received $289 million in damages.

Meanwhile, another instance involved Edwin Hardeman, a 70-year-old who the court granted $80 million in compensation. He utilized Roundup for many years, and it had been found that the herbicide was a significant element in his analysis. Bayer also signaled its intent to appeal this verdict and claimed the outcome wouldn’t affect future instances. But, Hardeman’s attorney said the result could impact the verdict in different lawsuits.
