Judgment Day

Any hopes Bayer-Monsanto had of getting off easy in the latest trial over Roundup weedkiller came crashing down this week.

The jury in the Hardeman v. Monsanto trial ordered Bayer to pay Edwin Hardeman $80 million. The judgment followed last week’s unanimous decision by the same jury that Roundup caused Hardeman’s cancer.

Meanwhile, jury selection began this week in a third trial, Pilliod v. Monsanto. This time, Alva and Alberta Pilliod, married for nearly 50 years, allege that long-term exposure to Roundup caused them both to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma cancer.

The Hardeman trial was considered a bellwether case for the more than 9,000 similar lawsuits coming down the pike, involving cancer victims who used Roundup.

How many more trials will it take before Roundup is banned for good?
