Bayer , which denies allegations that glyphosate or Roundup cause cancer Monsanto’s Roundup was the first glyphosate -based weed killer but is no longer patent-protected and Another California man was awarded 9 million in August after a state court jury found Roundup caused his cancer.

ruled for Bayer and blocked the state from requiring that any company selling a glyphosate -based produce place a “clear and reasonable warning” on it. California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment listed glyphosate in July 2017 as a chemical known to the state to cause cancer.

The highest court in the US state of California has rejected an appeal by Bayer Group against a first multi-million dollar glyphosate ruling. As can be seen from current court documents, the judges already rejected a corresponding application from the agricultural chemical and pharmaceutical company from Leverkusen on Wednesday (local time). It is about the first case with cancer victim Dewayne Johnson.

In July, an appeals court in San Francisco reduced the damages and punitive damages that a jury awarded Johnson in 2018 from the original $ 289 million to $ 20.5 million.

Bayer's search for the way forward

Bayer , which denies allegations that glyphosate or Roundup cause cancer, said it was disappointed with the jury's initial decision. Brokerage Warburg lowered its recommendation to "Hold" from "Buy", arguing that the with the renewed setback upcoming glyphosate court cases would remain a drag

Bayer described the decision as a step in the right direction, but also stressed that the judgment was not compatible with the legal situation. The Supreme Court should therefore clarify whether a manufacturer could be held liable under state product liability law if no cancer warning was affixed to a product. Because US federal law does not allow such a warning. In this context, Bayer repeatedly refers to the support from the US government and its EPA, which still did not classify glyphosate as carcinogenic.

The current decision of the judges is a setback for Bayer, but in view of the tens of thousands of glyphosate lawsuits in the USA, it is of minor importance. Because Bayer wants to enclose this in a large-scale comparison worth billions. The Johnson case and two other cases in which the plaintiffs were awarded large indemnities are not part of this intended settlement. (dpa)
