The Down-Low on Roundup

Edwin Hardeman’s case against Monsanto started as a personal search for accountability. In court, it cracked open a trove of incriminating evidence against the company that sets the stage for a clutch of other cases alleging the blockbuster Roundup weed killer caused cancer.  

His case revealed Monsanto’s secrets, like unsealed documents suggesting the company ghost-wrote studies.  

Hardeman used Roundup on his properties for 3 decades. Now, he’s been awarded $80 million in damages after a California court ruled that Roundup caused his non-Hodgkin lymphoma. But that hard-won victory, racked with “unusual and severe limitations,” is just the beginning.
