Roundup Class Action Lawsuit Updates
Thousands have filed lawsuits against Bayer after its acquisition of Monsanto, an agricultural manufacturer, in 2018. Monsanto manufactured the weed killer Roundup; allegedly knowing the ingredient glyphosate may cause cancer.
The U.S. District Court of the Northern District of California is the main body overseeing numerous individual and class action lawsuits. In January 2020, Judge Elizabeth Hogan postponed a jury trial due to negotiations regarding a potential settlement.
Bayer considering a Roundup settlement comes after it lost three lawsuits over the course of two years. The awards totaled more than $190 million.
Whether Bayer is able to reach a settlement with victims without another jury trial remains to be seen. Judge Hogan postponed, but did not dismiss the plaintiffs’ right to a jury trial should negotiation efforts fail.
Roundup and Cancer
The University of Washington released research in 2019 showing that agricultural workers, landscapers, and other professions who use Roundup on a frequent basis have a 40 percent increased chance of developing cancer.
A cancer diagnosis is devastating news for you and your family. The stage of your cancer can affect your ability to work and your course of treatment.
Surgery and possible chemotherapy can leave you with mounting medical costs and dangerous side effects. Knowing your cancer was possibly preventable, had the manufacturer used more care, is especially upsetting.
