Monsanto Loses $289 Million Verdict in Roundup Cancer Trial
"Jurors awarded him $39 million for his losses and $250 million to punish the company after finding it liable for a design defect and failing to warn of Roundup’s risks. Monsanto said it will appeal."
"Johnson was seeking $412 million in damages."
So the appeal could bring it up!
"Monsanto scientists knew of the cancer risk posed by Roundup as far back as the 1970s, but failed to inform the public and instead engaged in a "deliberate effort to distort the truth” as the weed killer generated hefty returns, Johnson’s lawyer, Brent Wisner, told the jury in closing arguments Tuesday."
"The trial was an important test of the evidence against Monsanto and will serve as a template for litigating thousands of other claims over the herbicide."
