Jury Finds Bayer’s Roundup Weedkiller Caused Man’s Cancer

SAN FRANCISCO—A jury found that a man developed cancer from exposure to Roundup weedkiller he used in his yard, in the second case to go to trial over the alleged harms of the popular Bayer AG BAYRY 2.50% product.

The six-person jury in U.S. District Court in San Francisco now is set to begin hearing evidence to separately weigh whether Bayer’s Monsanto unit should be held liable, a decision that could bring substantial financial damages against the company.

The initial verdict marks another setback for Bayer, which has come under intense pressure since a jury in August reached a $289.2 million verdict in the first case over the weedkiller to go to trial. That verdict came down soon after Bayer finalized its acquisition of Monsanto Co.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And now that the jury has made this decision, what is going to happen to the CEOs who knew this stuff was toxic, but let it kept being sold?!?

I would very much like to suggest that those individuals guilty of this wind up doing some real jail time, as an example of what could happen to CEOS in the future, who may be even thinking about doing something similar to this.
