Orlando Monsanto lawsuit attorneys
An Alameda County jury has issued yet another massive blow against agribusiness giant Monsanto to the tune of a $2 billion settlement awarded to a California couple who claimed that their cancer was caused by exposure to Roundup, the company’s top-selling glyphosate-based weed killer product.
Many people throughout the nation have been watching the drama of the lawsuit filed by an individual against the massive corporation Monsanto. Now a part of the German pharmaceutical company Bayer, Monsanto was accused by Edwin Hardeman, a resident of Santa Rosa, CA, of adding chemicals into their herbicides that resulted in his developing non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The reason this case has been so closely watched is that it is both the first of its kind, as well as likely to set the standards to which the more than 9,000 similar lawsuits now filed across the United States will adhere. In a massive victory for the people over a corporate entity, a federal jury in San Francisco found that Monsanto’s weed killer Roundup had contributed significantly to Hardeman’s contraction of cancer.
