Monsanto lawsuit update, $289 million payment

Monsanto ordered to pay $289 million in cancer lawsuit. A recent Monsanto lawsuit outcome feels like a win for the people. Finally. More than two years after the World Health Organization labeled the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup as “probably carcinogenic to humans,” the court system ruled the billion-dollar company is liable for its product’s potentially cancer-causing effects.

On August 9, 2018, a San Francisco jury found Monsanto liable in the first of more than 800 cancer-patient cases against the agricultural giant. Dewayne Johnson, 46, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a term that’s used to describe a group of cancers that develop in the lymphocytes, or white blood cells that make up the immune system. His case was the first to go to court because of his terminal condition, which granted him an expedited trial.

More Monsanto lawsuits.
Bayer AG now faces weedkiller lawsuits from more than 11,000 plaintiffs who claim Monsanto’s Roundup and related product led to their cancer, particularly non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The German life science company revealed the growing lawsuit figure this week as it announced financial results for FY 2018. The company is currently appealing a ruling from August 2018 in San Francisco that found Monsanto and Bayer liable for a former groundkeeper’s cancer. At the end of 2018, Bayer said that it was aware of more than 9,000 plaintiffs. This means there has been a 20% increase in just 90 days.

Feb 18, 2019. Plaintiffs Claim Glyphosate Destroyed Their Beneficial Gut Bacteria.

Monsanto's faulty logic that glyphosate affects only plant life is being challenged in court

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide is being attacked in court from a new angle. Previous lawsuits alleged that glyphosate was carcinogenic and responsible for contributing to the plaintiffs' Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a rare and deadly form of cancer. Others including DeWayne Johnson, a California state school maintenance worker, was awarded an adjusted $78 million for his NHL caused by coming into direct contact with Roundup on his skin. Johnson used the product to control weeds around school properties and playgrounds for several years on a regular basis and from time to time would come home "covered in the stuff" as per his court testimony. Monsanto Roundup herbicide attorneys can help families and people affected by roundup herbicide and provide a free no obligation consultation.
