A federal court jury in San Francisco awarded more than $80 million to a man who used Roundup for more than 26 years before being diagnosed with terminal cancer. The six-member jury awarded the man $200,000 for economic damages and more than $5 million for pain and suffering. An additional $75 million was awarded in punitive damages by the jury, finding that the Monsanto Co. had acted with "malice or oppression" in concealing the legal dangers of Roundup - the world's most widely used herbicide.
Farmers, agricultural workers, landscapers, and others across the country who use the popular weed killer Roundup have become ill in recent years. Some have even died. Coincidence? A Northern California groundskeeper who developed terminal cancer after using the world's most popular herbicide didn't think so. Neither did the San Francisco jury that ordered Roundup's manufacturer, Monsanto (recently acquired by Bayer) to pay $78 million in damages. Most recently, on March 19, 2019, a federal jury in San Francisco found Roundup was a substantial factor in causing a California man's cancer. After five days of deliberation over the scientific evidence presented at trial, the six-person jury unanimously concluded that the man had developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) from exposure to the weed killer. The trial on liability and damages will now move forward.
