US appeals court ruling is new setback for herbicide

Tuesday, June 22, 2021

Significance

Three juries so far have found that Roundup causes NHL and awarded substantial damages. The panel’s decision was followed by a separate federal court decision that rejects Bayer’s latest plan for resolving thousands of future glyphosate claims.

Impacts

  • Many US cities and states have already banned or restricted Roundup for both home and agricultural use.
  • Environmental groups have filed briefs in litigation seeking to challenge the federal registration for glyphosate.
  • In the absence of an approved settlement plan, the company must litigate future claims or settle them individually.
