Individual Trials Targeting Monsanto Roundup Herbicide Are Set To Resume in 2021

Settlement talks and the coronavirus pandemic in 2020 delayed Roundup herbicide trials

Tuesday, November 10, 2020 - Over 125,000 lawsuits against Bayer/Monsanto claim that using Roundup Herbicide repeatedly for many years causes plaintiffs to develop non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a rare and deadly form of cancer of the lymph nodes. The company has lost three out of three lawsuits that have concluded to date forcing the company to settle about 90,000 cases for an estimated 10 billion dollars. At least 25,000 plaintiffs refused the settlement offer and are pressing forward with their lawsuits. Bayer has been unable to put a cap on future legal claims with the settlement. Bloomberg Law reported the other day that individual cases are going to resume in 2021. "Bayer AG may face as many as four U.S. trials over its Roundup weed killer next year after a judge said Monday he's ready to resume putting cases in front of jurors. With thousands of lawsuits alleging the herbicide is cancerous still unresolved even after Bayer announced an $11 billion settlement plan in June, U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria in San Francisco said it's time to move forward following a period during which all the federal cases were on hold for negotiations," according to Bloomberg law. Monsanto Roundup cancer lawsuit attorneys represent all persons involved in a Roundup cancer lawsuit anywhere in the United States on a contingency basis with no obligation to file a claim.

As ominous are the multi-million dollar jury awards that loom over the company, Bayer's major concern may be the lack of demand that has been created by the adverse publicity that lawsuits and settlements have created. Entire countries like Germany, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, and agricultural giant Mexico have all stated they will cease using and phase in a total ban of the herbicide over the next one to five years. The ban is intended to give companies time to develop glyphosate alternatives and to minimize the economic disruptions an immediate ban could create. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), on the other hand, has been busy for the last four years promoting glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup Herbicide as being "as safe as drinking water." The US states, municipalities, and other political subdivisions have taken the initiative and have implemented their Roundup herbicide bans on or near government property such as schools and parks after California school groundskeeper Dwayne Lee Johnson developed cancer from regularly using and getting the herbicide on his skin. The latest glyphosate ban is being considered in Grand Rapids Michigan where legislators are considering forbidding the chemical's use on residential lawns and gardens. According to 13 On Your Side, "A state lawmaker has introduced a bill that would stop people from using products containing glyphosate on residential lawns and in flower beds. Under Senate Bill No. 1207, "a person shall not apply glyphosate on residential turfgrass or in residential flower beds or other residential groundcover beds."

It is not too late to file a claim against Bayer for failing to warn about the dangers of using Roundup Herbicide. You may be entitled to file a claim for monetary compensation and punitive damages.
