A man from St. Clair County, Illinois, claims that his exposure to Roundup weedkiller caused him to develop non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a potentially fatal disease that starts in the lymphatic system.
What’s the Problem?
July 29, 2016 – According to the lawsuit, Roundup herbicide caused the plaintiff to suffer severe permanent injuries, physical pain and mental anguish, and diminished quality of life. Plaintiff holds Monsanto Co. and John Does 1-50 responsible for his injuries because they designed, developed, manufactured, distributed, and/or sold the weed killer without adequately testing it or warning about its potential health risks. As a result, he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2011 because of glyphosate and other chemicals in Roundup, according to the lawsuit.
Plaintiff is requesting a jury trial and compensatory damages in excess of the jurisdictional amount, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorneys’ fees, costs and such other relief as the court deems fit. The case was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois under case number 16-C-823.
