Appeals court upholds $86.2 million in damages to a couple in Monsanto Roundup cancer case


A state appeals court has upheld $86.2 million in damages to a Northern California couple who developed cancer after spraying Monsanto’s Roundup in their yards for 30 years

VERBATIM: The San Francisco Chronicle reports the verdict was the third to be upheld by an appeals court that found Monsanto at fault for knowingly marketing a dangerous product. The court says in its ruling that jurors were entitled to conclude Monsanto knew the herbicide’s active ingredient, glyphosate, could be dangerous and failed to warn the couple. Bayer, Monsanto’s parent company, says it disagrees and is reviewing its options.
