Judge Reduces Bayer $1.56B Roundup Verdict to $611M

A Missouri judge slashed a $1.56 billion verdict against Bayer to $611 million for three people who claimed its Roundup weed killer caused their cancer, by reducing punitive damages. Bayer said on Friday it is appealing.

The German company’s Monsanto unit had been found liable in November by a Cole County, Missouri, jury to Valorie Gunther of New York, Jimmy Draeger of Missouri and Daniel Anderson of California, who blamed their non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma on their exposure to Roundup.

Jurors found Monsanto liable for negligence, design defects and failing to warn about Roundup’s risks. They awarded $61.1 million of compensatory damages and $1.5 billion of punitive damages, with the latter divided equally among the plaintiffs.
