Jury Returns an $80 Million Blowout Verdict Against Roundup Glyphosate Weed Killer, Owned by Bayer AG

Bayer AG bought Monsanto and the company has lost a second trial over claims that its Roundup weed killer causes cancer. Bayer has been ordered by a San Francisco jury to pay compensatory damages of $5.3 million and punitive damages of $75 million to Edwin Hardeman, 70, who was diagnosed with cancer after spraying the herbicide on his property for 26 years. The verdict follows a similar decision last August in which a former school groundskeeper was awarded $289 million after claiming that Roundup gave him non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Bayer, is facing more than 9000 similar lawsuits across the US.
