Landmark lawsuit claims Monsanto hid cancer danger of weedkiller for decades

Landmark lawsuit claims Monsanto hid cancer danger of weedkiller for decades | 22 May 2018 | With cancer spread through most of his body, doctors say DeWayne Johnson probably has just months to live. Johnson, a husband and father of three in California, hopes to survive long enough to make Monsanto take the blame for his fate. On 18 June, Johnson, 46, will become the first person to take the global seed and chemical company to trial on allegations that it has spent decades hiding the cancer-causing dangers of its popular Roundup herbicide products -- and his case has just received a major boost. Last week Judge Curtis Karnow issued an order clearing the way for jurors to consider not just scientific evidence related to what caused Johnson's cancer, but allegations that Monsanto suppressed evidence of the risks of its weed killing products. Karnow ruled that the trial will proceed and a jury would be allowed to consider possible punitive damages.
