Monsanto ordered to pay US$289 million in weedkiller cancer trial


A California jury on Friday found Monsanto liable in a lawsuit filed by a man who alleged the company's glyphosate-based weedkillers, including Roundup, caused his cancer and ordered the company to pay $289 million in damages. The case of school groundsman Dewayne Johnson was the first lawsuit to go to trial alleging glyphosate causes cancer.
