US Supreme Court rejects Bayer Roundup case | News | DW | 21.06.2022

The US Supreme Court on Tuesday declined to hear a case from the Bayer-owned Monsanto group that sought to challenge lawsuits over its allegedly cancer-causing weedkiller Roundup.

The rejection is a blow to Bayer’s attempts to limit the damage from legal payouts over Roundup. Bayer’s lawyers had hoped to shut down thousands of lawsuits over the weedkiller, banking on the conservative majority of the court.

Supreme Court justices left in place a $25 million (roughly €24 million) judgment against Monsanto, brought by a California man who developed cancer after using Roundup over a period of decades.
