Monsanto’s streak of defense wins in Roundup trials continues unabated—and this time, the jurors didn’t even get a chance to deliberate.

A Missouri judge said Thursday that he would grant Monsanto’s motion for a directed verdict after the close of evidence presented by plaintiff Mark McCostlin but before defense attorneys presented their case, according to trial coverage by Courtroom View Network. The trial, which began on Sept. 14, gives Monsanto another pivotal win in the ongoing litigation over whether Roundup, a pesticide, causes non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
