Man who got cancer from RoundUp weed killer will get $80 million
Monsanto, the mega-corp that owns the popular RoundUp brand of weed killers, lost its case in federal court against a man who claims the herbicide contributed to his cancer diagnosis. The company has been ordered to pay just over $80 million in damages to the victim, Edwin Hardeman.
The case is now the second huge judgement against Monsanto within the last calendar year over RoundUp. A case that wrapped up in August of 2018 saw plaintiff Dewayne Johnson, who has non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, originally awarded a hefty $289 million in damages from the company. That sum was later reduced to $78.5 million, and is still pending appeal.
