DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Another jury has found Bayer Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller liable for causing non-Hodgkin lymphoma, prompting attorneys representing thousands of victims to demand that the company take responsibility for continuing to sell its poisonous product following documented cases of cancer tied to glyphosate exposure.
The $1.56 billion jury verdict in Missouri Friday marks the fourth consecutive trial result in favor of Roundup plaintiffs in recent months. Juries found in favor of the cancer victims based on evidence presented showing that Bayer failed to warn consumers of the potential dangers of using Roundup and the link to cancer.
“I am pleased to see jurors ruling in favor of those who have been hurt by this dangerous product,” said Nachawati Law Group founder Majed Nachawati, whose Dallas-based firm represents more than 5,000 cancer victims against the manufacturers. “Let this send a clear message to Bayer and Monsanto that they will not escape accountability for what they have done to thousands of innocent people.”
Mr. Nachawati has been an outspoken voice against Monsanto’s attempts to circumvent the settlements of thousands of related lawsuits consolidated in multidistrict litigation. According to trial evidence, Monsanto for decades downplayed known cancer risks associated with exposure to glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup. Evidence in various cases shows Monsanto also sought to influence scientific studies of glyphosate that it funded and resisted placing warning labels on the product.

In July 2022, an 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals opinion found the chemical giant subject to warning label laws, halting Monsanto’s attempt to secure dismissal of lawsuits and removal of the claims to federal court. That ruling provided clarity for other pending lawsuits against Bayer (OTCMKTS: BAYZF, BAYRY) and its Monsanto subsidiary. Earlier this month, Union Investment, one of Bayer's top shareholders, called on the company to resolve the cases with the cancer victims.
