On March 27, 2019 a San Francisco jury ruled in favor of Plaintiff Edward Hardeman over Monsanto related to allegations that Roundup caused his non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The unanimous decision by the jury included an award of $5 million dollars in compensatory damages along with $75 million dollars in punitive damages.
The case was the 2nd Roundup trial to date with the first being the Miller Firm LLC’s client Lee Johnson who was awarded $289 million, but a judge later reduced to $78 million. The Miller Firm, LLC is also currently in trial with the third case in the country in Oakland, California.
These verdicts are indicative of the strength of the case and the bad conduct of Monsanto. The Miller Firm will continue to aggressively pursue trials all over the country until Monsanto decides to compensate the thousands of victims of cancer caused by Roundup.
