The Media Relations personnel of the law firm of Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman, PC emailed me at 6:20 PM Friday, August 10th, the verdict rendered by the jury in the 8-week trial whereby “the jury found unanimously that Monsanto’s glyphosate-based Roundup weed killer caused Mr. Johnson to develop NHL, and that Monsanto failed to warn of this severe health hazard. Importantly, the jury also found that Monsanto acted with malice, oppression or fraud and should be punished for its conduct.”
Furthermore, and here’s the most important part of that decision, the jury decided
ordering the agrochemical giant to pay $39.2 million in compensatory damages and $250 million in punitive damages for failing to warn consumers that exposure to Roundup weed killer causes cancer.
It seems Bayer bought a “pig-in-a-poke” when it decided to “marry” Monsanto! The above jury award amounts to $289.2 million to be paid to Mr. Dewayne Johnson, who is dying of non-Hodgkin lymphoma attributed to his spraying of Monsanto’s Roundup® products while working as a groundskeeper at a California school.
This specific information in the email from the GHAG law firm ought to give all consumers a legal standing against Roundup® in any court action:
“Many of these confidential Monsanto documents were unsealed for the first time,” said co-lead counsel David Dickens. “They show that Monsanto knew that its testing was insufficient and that there was a synergistic effect when glyphosate is combined with surfactants which help the glyphosate penetrate both plant and animal cell walls.”
Here’s Her Honor, the Judge, reading of the verdict in the court room, as transmitted by GHAG Media Relations email.

This should become the legal precedent to take ALL chemical companies—and microwave producers—who hide the factual downsides of their toxic products, including Big Pharma and vaccine makers, to trial. Deception and fraud are not legal defenses, U.S. Congress. Get your act together about the 1986 vaccine law!
