MONSANTO SETTLES MISSOURI ROUNDUP LAWSUITS
Agri-Pulse reports:


Monsanto has settled Roundup exposure litigation that had been scheduled for trial in Missouri state court Monday, as the company tries to resolve thousands of cases that remain active following its large-scale settlement two years ago.

"We are pleased that the Neal case has been resolved as part of our continuing work to settle the Roundup litigation on reasonable terms," Bayer, which bought Monsanto in 2018, said. The matter involved three separate plaintiffs.

Bayer continued, "Although the company may settle individual cases, it will not entertain further inventory settlement discussions with plaintiff lawyers that are representing a substantial number of Roundup claims, now that the Supreme Court has requested input from the Solicitor General in Hardeman."

Bayer has filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking review of a Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision that found the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act does not pre-empt state law negligence claims. Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar, the administration's top lawyer, has yet to provide her views on the case.
