June 24, 2020 — Bayer has agreed to pay at least $10 billion to resolve the bulk of roughly 125,000 lawsuits claiming that Monsanto’s Roundup® weed-killer causes cancer.
Bayer announced the settlement and said it will end 95% of the Roundup cancer litigation.
The total amount will range from $10.1 billion to $10.9 billion. It will resolve current lawsuits and include $1.25 billion for future lawsuits.
Bayer did not admit wrongdoing and said it will continue to sell Roundup without any warning labels about cancer. Bayer and Monsanto maintain that glyphosate, the active chemical in Roundup, does not cause cancer or non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Bayer inherited the Roundup litigation when it bought Monsanto in August 2018 for $63 billion, shortly before a jury in California awarded $280 million to a groundskeeper who developed lymphoma. That verdict was followed in 2019 by anther $2 billion verdict in California.
