Bayer gets new trial on punitive damages in $289 mln weed-killer case


Bayer AG's Monsanto unit has received a tentative ruling granting a new trial on the $250 million in punitive damages awarded by a jury to a groundskeeper who alleged the company's glyphosate-based weed killers, including Roundup, gave him cancer. According to Wednesday court filings in San Francisco's Superior Court of California, Judge Suzanne Bolanos was considering whether to grant the company's motion for a new trial on punitive damages.
