Calls Grow Louder for Bayer CEO’s Resignation as Juries Return Roundup Cancer Verdicts
Cancer victims are calling for Bayer AG CEO Werner Baumann to step down, citing failed leadership ...
An army of corporate lawyers employed by Bayer and its Monsanto subsidiary is employing a cynical waiting game to avoid accountability for thousands who have developed non-Hodgkins lymphoma after exposure to the Roundup weed killer.
Three juries have returned large multimillion dollar verdicts against Monsanto after finding that the glyphosate-based weed killer caused cancer. Appellate courts have also upheld the jury verdicts, yet Monsanto continues to seek an end-run around justice. The Germany-based corporation is now asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review one of the verdicts. On December 13, the high court delayed ruling on whether to consider the case and instead asked the U.S. solicitor general to provide an opinion on the issue.
Trial lawyer Majed Nachawati of Dallas-based Fears Nachawati law firm, which represents thousands of cancer victims who were exposed to Roundup, called on Monsanto to respect the jury verdicts and do the right thing.
“This is another delay tactic by Monsanto to evade responsibility when multiple juries have awarded millions of dollars to consumers who were harmed by Roundup and now have cancer and are dying by the day,” Mr. Nachawati said. “We’re hopeful that the solicitor general does the right thing and we’re hopeful that the court denies the appeal. Another day of delay is another day that people die at the hands of Monsanto’s dangerous products.”
