Thousands of people have filed lawsuits against Monsanto, the maker of Roundup, claiming the weed killer causes cancer. And juries in some cases have returned massive verdicts -- including $175 million won recently by Kline & Specter -- over claims that Roundup causes non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer.
If you or a loved one suffered cancer potentially related to the use of Monsanto Roundup, you may have grounds for a lawsuit.
Kline & Specter is currently handling nearly 1,000 Roundup cases, with more than 400 already in suit. In October 2023, the law firm won a $175 million verdict -- including $150 million in punitive damages -- against Monsanto Co. for an 83-year-old Philadelphia man who was diagnosed with cancer from years of using Roundup. The verdict was the first bellwether case among hundreds awaiting trial in the Philadelphia mass tort program over Roundup. (Read article)

Monsanto was bought by AG Bayer in 2018 in a $63 billion deal. Bayer has since been caught up in litigation over claims that Roundup causes cancer. The company insists it is not a carcinogen, but juries have disagreed.
In 2019, juries reached verdicts of $2 billion verdict and $80 million for California plaintiffs who said they got non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma from using Roundup. Earlier, in August 2019, attorneys won another large verdict, $289 million for a former groundskeeper who blamed his terminal cancer on Monsanto's Roundup, though the verdict was reduced by the judge in the case to $78.5 million.
