| Mar 28, 2019 | Firm News

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.
