Roundup Cancer Lawsuit

The product liability lawyers at RPWB are investigating Roundup lawsuits on behalf of commercial users (e.g., farmers, landscapers, groundskeepers, etc.) of the popular weed killer, including landscapers and farmers, who were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (part of the World Health Organization) issued a warning that glyphosate, an active ingredient in Roundup Weed Killer, describing the chemical as a possible carcinogen. The IARC linked glyphosate to non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Despite attacks and push back from the large agro-chemical industry, including Roundup–maker Monsanto, the IARC stands by its assessment that the active ingredient in Roundup may cause cancer.

Since then, farmers and landscapers who used Roundup Weed Killer and were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma have filed lawsuits alleging that the popular herbicide caused their cancer.
In August 2018, a California jury agreed with the science linking Roundup to non-Hodgkin lymphoma and awarded a former school groundskeeper $289 million. The jury awarded the terminally-ill man $39 million in compensatory damages and $250 million in punitive damages. In 2019, another California man was awarded $25 million after being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. In that case, the federal judge said Monsanto “deserved to be punished” for ignoring the links between Roundup and non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

In 2019, a new scientific analysis was released that found people with heavy exposure to products like Roundup that contain glyphosate have a 41 percent increased risk of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The findings, this time published by five U.S. scientists, largely confirm the 2015 IARC glphosate warning.
