Roundup Lawsuit Update: Will the Supreme Court Get Involved?

Bayer has already agreed to have to pay $11 billion in personal injuries settlements and trial verdicts amid claims that their flagship herbicide product Roundup causes non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Although the stock price has plummeted, a trial victory boosted its value in the latter part of 2021.

Bayer has been the subject of around 125,000 lawsuits alleging Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma-related injuries sustained after regularly using Roundup. Despite this, Roundup remains a well-known and popular weed killer. Bayer bought Monsanto, the company that developed Roundup in the 1970s,  in 2018. The company has been plagued by legal problems ever since its purchase.

Roundup claims that glyphosate (the main ingredient in the product) is carcinogenic. The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer agrees with this claim, classifying glyphosate as a “probable human carcinogen.” The Roundup lawsuits claim that Bayer failed to warn consumers about the dangers and that the product is dangerous. The company has settled around 100,000 lawsuits to date. However, two trials were won by Bayer in 2021 suggesting that a plaintiff’s path to a successful verdict is far from straightforward.

Bayer argues that the Environmental Protection Agency doesn't consider glyphosate carcinogenic. Therefore, they deemed it unnecessary to warn Roundup users of the potential association between glyphosate and Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Bayer has cited the EPA and other environmental and health agencies that believe glyphosate to be safe in all aspects of their defense.

Bayer was pleased with the Supreme Court's decision not to include the Biden administration. Many believe that it is a sign the justices are inclined to hear the cases. With Bayer's recent victories at trial, their defense might hold up at the highest court. Bayer stated that there is no basis for "failure-to-warn" claims, as the EPA did not prevent Roundup labels from being used for cancer warnings.
