Bayer Could Be Forced To Deal With Individual Roundup Lawsuits as Early as July

Roundup herbicide cancer settlement talks have stalled and individual trials are preparing to proceed in its wake

Friday, May 22, 2020 - Given the economic downturn caused by the worldwide economic shutdown, Bayer/Monsanto may no longer be able to liquidate sufficient assets at reasonable prices to set aside the tens of billions of dollars it would take to satisfy the nearly 75,000 claims against them. recently reported that settlement talks between Bayer and lawyers each representing thousands of Roundup cancer plaintiffs have been put on hold for the foreseeable future until there is a clearer picture of stock and real estate prices and the liquidity there will be in the financial marketplace. Meanwhile, About Lawsuits writes: "A third "wave" of Roundup lawsuits have been identified in the federal court system, which will go through case-specific discovery in preparation for trial, as settlement negotiations continue to stall in thousands of cases brought by users of the controversial weedkiller who developed non-Hodgkins lymphoma."

Instead of waiting for a settlement, plaintiffs are preparing their cases for the second half of 2020 and beyond. People that have used Roundup herbicide regularly and for many years and have developed different types of cancer are seeking monetary compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Most plaintiffs are suffering or have died from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a rare and deadly form of cancer of the lymph nodes. One recent case is being brought on behalf of a Platte County, Missouri man who has developed the disease. "James Gordon of Weatherby Lake filed a lawsuit on March 31 alleging the product known as Roundup (weedkiller) caused or contributed to his development of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. According to the suit, Gordon was diagnosed with cutaneous T-cell lymphoma in 2016 after using the product to maintain the yard around his home on Weatherby Lake. The suit contends Gordon was unaware that exposure to Roundup could cause the development of cancer," according to the PlatteCounty Landmark. Another plaintiff claims that his long-term use of Roundup herbicide caused him to develop rare leukemia. About Lawsuits reported that "(plaintiff) Gregory Canzoni indicates he was diagnosed with hairy cell leukemia in September 2011, following exposure to glyphosate and the surfactant polyethoxylate tallow amine (POEA) contained in Roundup."

Interesting to note is that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide is considered "probably carcinogenic" by the World Health Organization's cancer division, and also that the chemical cocktail that is Roundup contains the surfactant polyethoxylate tallow amine (POEA). POEA caused glyphosate to stick to plants allowing the leaves and stem to absorb it and die. The same appears to be true on human skin where occupational users of Roundup have developed cancerous legions where they have repeatedly had direct skin contact to Roundup. Experts have testified in all three cases that have awarded hundreds of millions of dollars in punitive damages, that glyphosate can bioaccumulate on human skin causing irritation and absorption into the bloodstream that can lead to these various cancers. If you or a loved one have used Roundup herbicide regularly and have developed cancer you should consult a Roundup Cancer Lawyer to see if you qualify to file a claim.
