Bayer was ordered on Tuesday to pay nearly $3.5 million by a Philadelphia jury that found the company’s Roundup weedkiller caused a woman’s cancer, the company said, the latest in a string of trial losses for the company as it tries to fend off thousands of similar lawsuits.

The verdict in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas marks the fifth consecutive loss for Bayer, but it is much smaller than recent verdicts against the company that total more than $2 billion.
