As promised, the makers of Roundup, who chose to take this case to jury trial rather than resolve it, have filed motions asking for a new trial, and in the alternative reducing the award. I for one found it incredibly arrogant and insulting to average people to see Monsanto state verbatim “the jury got it wrong.” Arguments are set for October 10. During the trial, Monsanto’s merger with Bayer was completed, and the name Monsanto will soon be phased out. However. Roundup continues to be an enormously profitable product, and thousands of people are diagnosed with non Hodgkin lymphoma every year as a result of using it. To date, the manufacturer has refused to put any sort of relevant warning on it.
