$10 Billion Settlement Reached in Roundup Weed Killer Cancer Litigation

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Cory Watson Attorneys, alongside many other plaintiff’s firms, have reached a $10.95 billion settlement with Monsanto on behalf of thousands of Americans who have been diagnosed with cancer after exposure to Roundup, the world’s most popular weed killer. Cory Watson has filed multiple lawsuits on behalf of plaintiffs against Monsanto, alleging that exposure to their widely used herbicide Roundup was causing Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in farmers, landscapers, maintenance workers, and homeowners. “It has been a long journey, but we are pleased to have achieved justice for the tens of thousands of people who, through no fault of their own, are suffering from Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma after using a product Monsanto assured them was safe,” said Douglas A. Dellaccio Jr., principal attorney and Complex Litigation Practice Co-Chair at Cory Watson. For nearly 40 years, farmers around the world used Roundup without knowledge of the dangers posed by its use. Monsanto, the maker of Roundup, has failed to place a warning label on its product informing the consumer that the product contains dangerous agricultural chemicals. In 2015, the World Health Organization found that glyphosate, the principal “weed killer” component of Roundup, is carcinogenic to humans. Monsanto continues to insist that Roundup is harmless and poses no danger to its users, saying it has no plans to pull the product from the market. “This $10 billion settlement is the first big step in correcting the forty years of harm caused by glyphosate, and a big win for anyone who may have been exposed to this dangerous chemical and its carcinogenic effects,” said J. Curt Tanner, principal attorney at Cory Watson. The settlement between Monsanto and plaintiffs is being overseen by court-appointed mediator Kenneth Feinberg, who previously managed compensation funds after September 11 and the explosion of the BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. “Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is a devastating disease, and many of our clients continue to suffer the effects of this cancer,” said R. Andrew Jones, attorney at Cory Watson. “This settlement should help our clients rebuild and move forward in a meaningful way.” Monsanto faces thousands of lawsuits in federal and state courts over the herbicide. Three cases have gone to trial, with juries returning verdicts of $289 million, $80 million, and $2 billion against Monsanto. About Cory Watson Attorneys Cory Watson Attorneys is a nationally recognized personal injury and environmental tort law firm with offices in Birmingham, Alabama; Memphis, and Nashville, Tennessee.

Cory Watson Attorney Lauren S. Miller Appointed to Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in Zantac Litigation

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Cory Watson attorney Lauren S. Miller has been named to the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee (PSC) for In Re: Zantac (Ranitidine) Products Liability Litigation, the multidistrict litigation involving Zantac medication linked to cancer. Ms. Miller is one of 20 attorneys appointed by U.S. District Judge Robin L. Rosenberg to the PSC out of 62 applicants. The PSC will continue to investigate and develop the Zantac (ranitidine) claims. The committee also oversees the coordination, preparation, and presentation of the cases. “I’m honored to be selected to work with this incredibly talented group of attorneys to lead this nationwide litigation,” said Ms. Miller. “It is a privilege to help lead the charge for justice on behalf of consumers who have been harmed by this defective drug.” The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation established MDL 2924 in February, consolidating defective drug liability cases involving Zantac in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida. Over 200 cases have been filed in the federal MDL, with thousands more expected to be filed against the manufacturers and distributors of Zantac and ranitidine. On April 1, 2020, the FDA ordered the removal of all Zantac (ranitidine) products from the market due to excessive levels of NDMA, a known probable human carcinogen. Exposure to NDMA has been linked to multiple cancers, including cancer of the stomach, colon, intestines, kidneys, and pancreas. “The manufacturers of Zantac have known for decades that the drug is unsafe for consumers,” said Ms. Miller. “Thousands of individuals have been diagnosed with cancer after taking this defective drug. I look forward to holding the drug manufacturers and distributors responsible on behalf of injured plaintiffs.” The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation established the MDL in February consolidating 140 lawsuits. The litigation is In Re: Zantac Ranitidine Products Liability Litigation, case number MDL 2924 and is located in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Florida. About Lauren S. Miller Lauren S. Miller joined Cory Watson Attorneys in 2015 and is licensed to practice law in the state and federal courts of Alabama. Ms. Miller primarily focuses her practice on personal injury and represents plaintiffs in complex litigations involving dangerous pharmaceutical drugs, medical devices, and consumer products. In addition to her complex litigation practice, Ms. Miller represents clients in individual personal injury claims and pursues justice for sexual assault survivors. Ms. Miller’s experience includes serving on the discovery, expert, and Daubert committees in In Re: Viagra (Sildenafil Citrate) and Cialis (Tadalafil) Products Liability Litigation (MDL 2691) where she was part of a six-attorney team from multiple law firms across the country that presented expert witnesses and scientific evidence in a four-day causation hearing in federal court in San Francisco, California. She was also recently part of a national team that favorably resolved over 500 cases against a well-known medical device manufacturer for individuals injured by the company’s defective device.
