Bayer AG filed its anticipated petition before the U.S. Supreme Court in hopes of obtaining a ruling that could cap future lawsuits over its pesticide Roundup.

Monday’s petition, filed by former U.S. Solicitor General Seth Waxman, co-chairman of the appellate and Supreme Court litigation practice at Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr, is a key part of Bayer’s strategy to resolving thousands of claims over Roundup, which remains on store shelves without warning on the product label that the pesticide could cause non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
