Bayer AG asks for Roundup Verdict to Be Tossed

[:en]Bayer AG is asking for the recent $2 billion dollar verdict to be reversed, according to an article by Reuters.

Roundup Lawsuit Verdict Reversed?

Bayer AG is asking a California judge to reverse the recent $2 billion dollar verdict involving their popular herbicide product Roundup. Bayer AG who bought out the developer of the product Monsanto Corp last summer, claims that the decision was not supported by real evidence.

Roundup Theatrics

In the article, Bayer AG released a statement that the evidence presented during the trial was based on “inflammatory, fabricated, and irrelevant evidence.” This most recent trial involving an elderly couple diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma resulted in the largest Roundup verdict to date.

Bayer AG Feeling The Heat

Bayer AG is feeling mounting legal pressure, as over 13,000 lawsuits involving Roundup are pending against the company. With three straight trial losses, the company has experienced a loss in sales and profit, which could only continue if the company continues to find itself on the losing end in the courtroom.

With Roundup Lawsuits Piling Up – Bayer AG Goes For Image Makeover

[:en]Facing significant legal backlash over Roundup, Bayer AG who is the parent company of Monsanto made an announcement that they are looking into glyphosate alternatives.

Roundup Lawsuit Troubles

With Roundup claims skyrocketing and an upcoming trial in Monsanto’s hometown of St. Louis, Bayer AG is struggling to keep a handle on its image. According to an article from Fortune, the company released a statement that they are “committed to offering more choices for growers.”

Another Roundup Loss Ahead?

With a third straight trial loss on their hands, it remains to be seen how the upcoming trial in St. Louis will play out. Bayer AG and Monsanto are also currently dealing with mediation proceedings involving a large number of Roundup claims.

EU Review

The company is also gearing up to get its glyphosate product ready for review by the EU. Squeaking by last time with only a 5-year approval for use, the current legal situation could have an impact on whether the product is reapproved in the future.

Are Roundup Lawsuits Just the Beginning?

[:en]With the popular herbicide Roundup making waves in the legal world, there is a shift in attention to how we grow our food. Is it possible that health problems caused by products like Roundup are just the beginning of a bigger issue?

Roundup Resistant

While the product Roundup is marketed as a product to protect crops from weeds, there is a high cost. Many individuals are now claiming that exposure to the product has led them to be diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma: a serious form of cancer. Monsanto and Bayer AG now have over 1,300 pending lawsuits in the US alone regarding Roundup. There are also active claims in Canada and Australia as well.

Unknown Outcomes

An article by The Guardian, illustrates how the US is approaching food vs other developed countries. The US views growing food in a “guinea pig” fashion, waiting to ban chemicals and substances until after problems appear. This causes new diseases, pests, and issues to pop up that we may not be able to control.

Health and Cancer Risk

As a result, these products may not show that they are harmful to human and environmental life until it is too late. Like with Roundup, it is possible that more products in the same group can cause potential health issues for individuals in the future.

Monsanto Asks for $80M Roundup Verdict to be Overturned

[:en]Monsanto is asking a federal judge to throw out the $80 million dollar verdict from a Roundup lawsuit awarded to Edwin Hardeman in March 2019.

Roundup Drama

Monsanto (and its parent company Bayer AG) are claiming that the plaintiffs lawyers did not provide any solid scientific evidence, as well as ignoring the judge’s orders involving expert testimony according to an article by Legal NewsLine.

Monsanto and Bayer AG’s Long Shot Defense

The odds are not in favor however for the company. During the trial Judge Vincent Chhabria rejected these types of arguments before. Monsanto and Bayer AG have also tried what is known as a “silver bullet” defense asking for all pending Roundup lawsuits and current verdicts to be overturned because the EPA has stated that glyphosate is not a health risk.

Roundup Cancer Lawsuits Continue

Roundup has also recently made waves internationally, with lawsuits filed in Canada and Australia. Federal lawsuits are currently paused while mediation is ongoing, however a new lawsuit could be on the horizon in August, 2019.

Bayer AG Caught in Europe Roundup Scandal

[:en]Bayer AG who is the parent company of Monsanto Corp has found themselves in a scandal in Europe involving their weed killer product Roundup.

Pro and Anti Roundup Pesticide Lists

According to a CBS News article, Bayer AG was shown by a French TV show to have lists of people in Europe who were known to be either pro or anti pesticide use. Roundup is a controversial product as there are currently numerous legal claims in the US involving exposure to the product and individuals developing non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

The lists were put together by FleishmanHillard a public relations agency working for Bayer AG and Monsanto.

Causing an Uproar

As a result there was significant outrage over the discovery of the lists. A complaint was filed with a French regulatory agency due names of journalists being on the lists. The PR agency above has stopped taking work at this time due to the incident.

Bayer AG Apologizes

Bayer AG has since issued an apology and has hired a legal firm to look at the lists and see if the contacts expand beyond European countries.

Kenneth Feinberg To Mediate Roundup Lawsuits

[:en]Attorney Kenneth Feinberg has been appointed by U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria as the mediator between Monsanto and plaintiffs who have lawsuits against the company over their weed killer product Roundup. The lawsuits are based on claims that exposure and using Roundup has caused them to develop Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

What is Roundup Mediation?

When two parties enter into mediation, it means they are both open to discussing settlement in their particular claims.

Monsanto and Plaintiffs Disagree

According to a Reuters article Mr. Chhabria named Mr. Feinberg to the role of mediator after both sides were unable to agree on a selection. Mediation was ordered on April 11, 2019.

Roundup Adds To The List

Mr. Feinberg already has had significant experience as a mediator in high-profile cases. He has helped mediate for events such as the BP oil spill/explosion and the VW emissions case.  

More Roundup Cancer Lawsuits to Come

Even though mediation is beginning, Mr. Chhabria has still set the next Roundup trial to begin in February of 2020, so Monsanto is not done with legal issues yet. This could potentially spell trouble for the company, as the last trial Mr. Chhabria presided over, the plaintiff Edwin Hardeman won an $80 million dollar verdict.

Roundup Influence Goes Beyond Just Humans

[:en]Roundup the commercial weed killer has been making a splash due to individuals who claim the product has caused them to develop non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Beyond the human impact, scientists are also looking at the environmental impact as well.

Roundup The Bees

According to an article from The Guardian that looked at the impact glyphosate (the active ingredient in Roundup) is having on our society, the threat to bees was brought up.

A scientific study was done that looked at how Roundup has affected the chemical process of flowers, which as a result changes how bees are able to pollinate them.

Another scientific study has found that Glyphosate targets a specific enzyme that is found in the intestine of most bees. This enzyme, that was long thought to only exist in plants, contributes to a bees ability to fight disease and leads to premature death.

Monsanto’s Influence

Questions have been swirling about whether Monsanto has tried to influence the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) by providing the agency with false data (read more about that here). In one of the recent Roundup trials, the company made attempts to limit what evidence could be admitted that showed the company’s attempts to sway industry officials about the safety of the product.

The company also continues to run a publicity campaign advocating for the safety of its product by featuring agriculturist families.
