Another damaging decision from the courts…..

LOS ANGELES, C.A., Nov. 18, 2021 — California couple Alva and Alberta Pilliod will retain an $87 million verdict stemming from their lawsuit against Monsanto Company (now part of Bayer AG), claiming the company’s Roundup weed killer causes cancer.

 Pilliod et al. v. Monsanto was the third Roundup case to go before a jury. The Pilliods had their case expedited to trial due to their advanced ages and cancer diagnoses.

In 2019, the jury in Pilliod awarded the plaintiffs $2.055 billion, finding that Monsanto was liable for knowingly marketing a dangerous product. While the judge later reduced the verdict to $87 million, it went on to survive appeal. In August of 2021, the First District Court of Appeal in San Francisco affirmed the verdict, finding that Monsanto demonstrated “conscious disregard for the safety of others.” 

 Yesterday, the California Supreme Court denied Bayer’s request for review of the appeal’s court decision.

 “This is not even remotely surprising,” says Baum Hedlund Aristei & Goldman attorney R. Brent Wisner, who served as co-lead counsel for the Pilliods at trial. “It’s not clear how many times Monsanto needs to lose before it stops making frivolous appeals. The Pilliod verdict was based on solid science and unanimous law. They need to stop using the appeals process to deny paying this family its judgment.”

 

Wisner was just 35 years old when the jury awarded his clients a staggering $2.055 in damages. He became the youngest attorney to ever earn a multi-billion-dollar jury verdict. Following the success of the Pilliod case, Wisner and other leading the Roundup litigation went on to help negotiate $10.9 billion in settlements with Bayer to resolve thousands of Roundup cases.

Baum Hedlund Aristei & Goldman is no longer accepting Roundup cases. Nothing in this release is intended to promote or encourage further litigation against Monsanto related to Roundup and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Wisner is now actively litigating Zantac lawsuits on behalf of clients who allege ranitidine contains a dangerous carcinogen. His firm also represents parents in baby food lawsuits alleging several major brands knowingly sell products tainted with high levels of toxic heavy metals.

The statement highlighted in red raises questions….what do you think. Roundup, the prime product for all this litigation is still being sold to the tune of BILLIONS of dollars in gross profits per year. I have to ask why??? Why all this 30 year charade over this poison that has been proven in the courts to cause adverse affects to humans and literally poisons our food supply, has this product not been pulled off the shelves??? Is this for the attorneys?? Have all remedy’s been exhausted??? Is there a back door deal???

***********update******

In regards to the Questions posed above…boy was I off. The reason the Law Firm is no longer accepting NEW cases….that is very important.  distinction. Baum Hedlund Aristei & Goldman Consumer Attorneys, made a settlerment in 2020 based on the best interests of their clients. Therefore, No NEW cases. was part of the agreement. There are many other lawsuits…perhaps it’s time we get back into the GMO rhelm???

**********************************************************************************

There is a product called Dicamba that has also been around for some time. Dicamba is a broad-spectrum herbicide first registered in 1967. Brand names for formulations of this herbicide include Dianat, Banvel, Diablo, Oracle and Vanquish. This chemical compound is a chlorinated derivative of o-anisic acid.

This poison gained momemtum when all the lawsuits started with Glyphosate. Many farmers have sued because of the drift effect that Diacamba has. We currently have some questions submitted and will update this when we receive them…

Until Next Time….

Happy gardening…
