Thousands of Roundup cancer cases are cropping up across the nation after two major California verdicts declared Monsanto guilty of attempting to conceal that its popular weed killer causes cancer. In August of last year, a jury awarded a terminally ill school groundskeeper $289 million, including over $230 million in punitive damages. Although the judge later reduced the punitive damages, in March of this year, another jury awarded a 70 year-old Santa Rosa man $80 million for his battle with non-Hodgkin lymphoma that was caused by repeat exposure to Roundup weed killer.

Individual Roundup Lawsuit vs. Roundup Class Action Lawsuit
The Roundup Class Action lawsuit involves the mislabling of Roundup and seeks compensation for consumers who say that they would not have purchased Roundup if they had known that it was a dangerous product. We do not represent consumers in class actions against Monsanto.
We represent individuals who have been diagnosed with cancer due to repeat exposure to Roundup weed killer. Because every individual’s experience with Roundup cancer is unique, every case should be treated as unique, as well. Every person we represent will have his or her own separate case against Monsanto.

Weed Killer Cancer: Glyphosate
The active ingredient found in Roundup weed killer, known as glyphosate, has been confirmed by both the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer and California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment as a cancerous ingredient. In the forty five years since Roundup was introduced in the United States, it has been sprayed more than any other agricultural chemical in history.
According to thousands of lawsuits filed against Roundup’s manufacturer, Monsanto (now owned by Bayer), knew for decades that Roundup’s active ingredient, glyphosate, was dangerous, yet they did nothing to protect consumers. One expert witness revealed in court testimony that Monsanto conducted their safety studies in deceitful ways, using skin from animals and humans that had been “baked and cooked” so that the glyphosate would not be able to penetrate the skin and thus the study would show no harm.
On three separate occasions since Roundup’s inception–in 1983, 1991, and 1996–companies hired by Monsanto to test Roundup’s safety were charged with fraud by the EPA and the New York Attorney General.
Now, thousands of people who have been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other cancers due to their exposure to Roundup are filing weed killer cancer lawsuits against Monsanto.
