Angela Mueller, St. Louis Business Journal, March 5, 2018
A federal judge in San Francisco is scheduled to begin hearings Monday to determine whether valid scientific evidence exists to support the claims in numerous lawsuits that Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide can cause cancer.
U.S. Distrcit Judge Vince Chhabria, who is presiding over more than 300 lawsuits against Monsanto, will spend a week hearing witness from experts about the alleged link between Roundup and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, the Associated Press reports. Chhabria will not be determining whether the product causes cancer but rather whether the claims that it does have been tested and reviewed and are now widely accepted in the scientific community.
His decision will determine whether doctors and other experts can testify to juries in the cases that Roundup can cause cancer.
