    Default California Jury Awards $2 Billion To Couple In Roundup Weed Killer Cancer Tria

    A California jury has awarded a couple more than $2 billion in a verdict against Monsanto, a subsidiary of Bayer. This is the third recent court decision involving claims that the company's Roundup weed killer caused cancer.
    The jury in Alameda County, just east of San Francisco, ruled that the couple, Alva and Alberta Pilliod of Livermore, Calif., contracted non-Hodgkin's lymphoma because of their use of the glyphosate-based herbicide. They were each awarded $1 billion in punitive damages and an additional $55 million in collective compensatory damages.

    Yep. The $10 Billion settlement covers only U.S. glyphosate lawsuits, and does not include the 3 lawsuits where the juries have already awarded plaintiffs settlements. But, all 3 of those cases are under appeal by Bayer....surprise, surprise. Outside the U.S., Bayer is still on the hook to address another 60,000 lawsuits; this number varies depending on the source. It is highly likely Bayer will bundle all these lawsuits and reach an overall award to settle them as well. Two years (June 2018) since Bayer acquired Monsanto, and nothing but trouble ever since.

    There's an assumption that the amount will be reduced on appeal, but that's still a lot of payola.
