$2.25 Billion Verdict Against Bayer for Roundup

A Pennsylvania man has been awarded $250,000 in compensatory damages and $2 billion in punies as a jury determined his non-Hodgkins lymphoma was caused by using Roundup in his yard for several years.  This is one of 6 recent plaintiff wins in Roundup trials, though the company has won 10 of the last 16.  In 2020, Bayer settled most of the then-existing cases for $9.6 billion, but was unable to obtain a settlement for future cases.  Over 50,000 claims are currently pending.
