Appeal of first RoundUp trial to begin in June

The very first verdict against Monsanto due to their weedkiller RoundUp occurred in August of 2018.  The plaintiff obtained non-Hodgkins lymphoma from using RoundUp over the years.  Glyphosate, the active ingredient in RoundUp, has been proven to be a toxic chemical that causes cancer.  The plaintiff won a $289 million (USD) settlement that was reduced to $78 million (USD) by the trial judge in California.

Despite the fact that Monsanto was given a $211 million (USD) break by the judge, Monsanto still appealed the verdict because Monsanto still claims that RoundUp does not cause cancer.  The problem is that Monsanto does not have any proof that the herbicide is not a carcinogen because Monsanto has never tested to see if their product causes cancer.

The hearing for the appeal will begin in June in a California Appellate Court.  This type of negligence shows why the Bayer acquisition of Monsanto is the worst business acquisition so far in the 21st century.
