Monsanto owner, Bayer AG, is contemplating pulling the popular herbicide from the residential market as it struggles to cement a strategy to limit ongoing litigation.
“Removing glyphosate from residential use would be a step in the right direction.”
“It’s a slam dunk for plaintiffs. This proves these claims are viable in the tort system.”
“Will they continue the pattern of doing the bidding of global biotech/seed firms like Monsanto? Or, will the USTR respect other countries’ rights to protect the environment and indigenous crops?”
The court said that Monsanto’s argument that scientific findings about glyphosate’s links to cancer constituted a “minority view” was not supported.
Bayer will have to pay between "$8.8 billion to $9.6 billion to resolve current Roundup lawsuits."
"Citizens, media and decision-makers should know who pays for studies on subjects of public interest."
“This verdict is just the tip of the iceberg.”
Bader Farms claims Monsanto induces farmers to buy dicamba-tolerant seeds.
