Did a jury ignore science when it hit Monsanto with a $2-billion verdict?


The Pilliod verdict follows a victory in California state court last year for DeWayne Johnson, a Vallejo groundskeeper who said he had used the glyphosate formulation Ranger Pro for years before being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The jury’s $289-million award was reduced to $79 million by the judge in the case, but Monsanto has appealed. Last March, a federal jury in San Francisco awarded Edwin Hardeman, who had used Roundup on his rural properties, $80 million, including $75 million in punitive damages.
