[In due course, Monsanto/Bayer will be wiped off the face of the earth from financial ruin, bad karma, and the reactions of angry victims and families of those who have died horrible deaths, thanks to Monsanto and it panorama of poisons in food, in harbors, in agriculture, and really everywhere.]
Feinberg is well known for having facilitated dispute resolutions in high dollar litigations in the past,for example, over General Motors ignition switch litigation. the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster, and Volkswagen's diesel emissions scandal.
Chhabria scheduled the next federal Roundup trial for February 2020. The case would mark the second bellwether, or test trial, to help determine the range of damages and define settlement options for federal cases. The judge will prepare some 20 cases currently pending before him for trial and send them to other courts across the country.
(Chhabria, who oversees some 900 federal Roundup lawsuits, on April 11 ordered the parties to start confidential mediation. He appointed Feinberg after the parties failed to agree on a mediator).
Feinberg has been instructed to meet with lawyers for Bayer and plaintiffs within the next 14 days, U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria in San Francisco said during a court hearing on Wednesday.
A little background history:
Bayer said it would defend itself in each of the cases and will wait on the appeals process underway for the three cases that have gone to trial and resulted in jury verdicts against it.
A California jury on May 13 awarded $2 billion to a couple alleging Roundup caused their cancer.
In March, a federal jury in San Francisco awarded $80 million to a California man after finding Roundup caused his cancer.
That decision came after another California jury in August 2018 awarded $289 million to a groundskeeper in the first U.S. Roundup trial. That award was later reduced to $78 million.
The Times full page ad on Roundup quotes Alexandra Dunn, Asst. Admin for EPA's Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention: "There's no risk to public health from the application of Glyphosate"
You must see the paper to view the rest of the ad; given my adherence to Truth, I am not even going to retype any of the rest of the phony verbiage in it, any more than I have with this EPA sycophantic apparatchik's mendacious double talk above, being read by millions of accepting naive human guinea pigs today, a mere adolescent recitation of the "Monsanto/Reoundup "Straight Party Line."
