Lawyers Want California Supreme Court to Review First Roundup Verdict
The petitions, filed by Bayer, which owns Monsanto, and lawyers for Dewayne "Lee" Johnson, who won a $289 million verdict in 2018, are the first before the California Supreme Court from among three Roundup cases that have gone to trial.
Lawyers involved in the first Roundup verdict in the nation have petitioned the California Supreme Court to review the jury’s award.
In a Monday petition, Bayer, which owns Monsanto, insisted that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act preempted the claims of plaintiff Dewayne “Lee” Johnson, who got a $289 million verdict in 2018. Bayer’s lawyers wrote that the appeal is about more than Johnson’s case.
