Bayer Loses Roundup Weedkiller Appeal – The Wall Street Journal


Bayer AG lost an appeal in the first case to go to trial linking its Roundup weedkiller to cancer, though the California court greatly reduced the amount of damages awarded to $20.4 million.
The Monday decision by the California Court of Appeal comes in the case of school groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson, who won a 2018 jury trial blaming Roundup for causing his non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The jurys initial $289.2 million award sent Bayers stock tumbling and was followed by an even larger $2 billion award in a second trial.
