Smith & Johnson is already representing individuals who have developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma as a result of Roundup exposure. We have found that here in Northern Michigan, hunters who enjoy practicing quality deer management and spending time on their properties developing food plots for their hunts, are exposed at a much higher rate than most other individuals here in Michigan. NPR has a report on a California couple who was awarded over $2 billion in a Roundup lawsuit:
The jury in Alameda County, just east of San Francisco, ruled that the couple, Alva and Alberta Pilliod of Livermore, Calif., contracted non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma because of their use of the glyphosate-based herbicide. They were each awarded $1 billion in punitive damages and an additional $55 million in collective compensatory damages.
The verdict represents the third such legal setback for the company in California since mid-2018. In March, a San Francisco jury awarded $80 million to a man who blamed his cancer on his extensive use of Roundup.
…Ken Cook, president of the Environmental Working Group, said: “The cloud hanging over Bayer will only grow bigger and darker, as more juries hear how Monsanto manipulated its own research, colluded with regulators and intimidated scientists to keep secret the cancer risks from glyphosate.”
Four years ago, a United Nations-sponsored scientific agency declared that Roundup probably causes cancer.
