Monsanto Liable for Non-Hodgin’s Lymphoma, Ordered to Pay $80 Million


The popular weed killer Roundup was on the losing end of another major decision in federal court. A six member jury in San Francisco found that Monsanto failed to include a label on the weed killer warning of the risk of cancer. The jury awarded Edwin Hardeman, who used the product on his property for 26 years, more than $80 million, including $75 million in punitive damages, $5 million for past and future suffering, and $200,000 for medical bills. Monsanto plans to appeal the verdict. The company lost a similar case in 2018 and was ordered to pay $289 million in damages. That amount was later reduced to $80 million and is also being appealed. Monsanto was acquired by Bayer in 2018.
