The San Francisco Court of Appeals refused to review Edwin Hardman’s case, at Bayer’s request, and upheld the ruling for the group to pay $ 25 million in damages to the man.
Hardman, who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2015, confirms that the regular use of glyphosate-based herbicides made him sick.
The judges upheld the district court ruling in favor of Edwin Hardman in his lawsuit that a news report on pesticides from Monsanto Caused lymphoma, “the decision notes, noting that” since 2015, thousands of cancer victims have taken Monsanto before state and federal courts. “
Friday’s ruling indicates that the District Court correctly rejected Monsanto’s appeal “as evidence showed that the cancer risk of glyphosate was known at the time Hardman was exposed” to the product.
The group was disappointed with Friday’s ruling and said it would continue to consider “all legal options, including referring the case to the Supreme Court.”
Bayer faces a number of legal issues in the United States related to herbicides because the glyphosate in this product is suspected of causing cancer.
Bayer Last year, it approved spending more than $ 12 billion to resolve some of the legal claims related to the report. /.
