A California federal jury announced a $80 million dollar verdict in a Roundup trial brought against Bayer AG and Monsanto by plaintiff Edwin Hardeman.
What was the basis for the lawsuit?
Mr. Hardeman claims that his prolonged exposure to glyphosate caused his diagnosis of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (get more details on the specifics of his case here).
What is the significance of the verdict?
This could potentially set a precedence for the 11,000 other pending Roundup cases at the federal and state level according to CNN. Bayer AG who is the parent company of Monsanto has stated they do not believe this verdict will have any effect on future lawsuits.
Are there plans for an appeal?
Yes. Bayer AG has announced they plan to file an appeal of the ruling.
