St. Louis Trial

Another trial in St. Louis involving claims that exposure to Roundup caused cancer ended in a disappointing verdict. The plaintiff, who was the only one of ten people on trial, faced a jury consisting mostly of Monsanto employees. The jury found that the plaintiff failed to make his case, and awarded $110 million in damages to Monsanto (not the defendant).

Ten more trials with glyphosate are happening soon. Bayer could finally settle some of these cases without going through a tough trial, but they will let some go to court to show how strong their defense is.

Trials in California

During the Second Week of November, the next Roundup trial began in a California State court. The plaintiff in this case continuously sprayed Roundup on his Northern California property for over 30 years. He continued to use the product after his NHL diagnosis in 2007 because he wasn't made aware of the risk of NHL associated with Roundup. This trial was expedited because Mr. Langford is in poor health. The last Roundup trial in St. Louis resulted in Bayer winning defense verdicts against all three plaintiffs - but California juries have awarded billions in the three Roundup verdicts these past few months.
