A federal jury hit Monsanto with a verdict of more than $80 million Wednesday after finding the company liable for a man’s cancer caused by its Roundup herbicide.

After one day of deliberations, six jurors in San Francisco unanimously found that Monsanto, now owned by Bayer AG, was liable for plaintiff Edwin Hardeman’s non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The award includes $75 million in punitive damages for Hardeman, who alleged he was diagnosed with the blood cancer after two decades of using Roundup to kill weeds on his 56-acre property in Sonoma County.
