The $10.9 billion payout Bayer has offered to settle most Roundup cancer lawsuits may be in jeopardy after a judge said he fears “shenanigans” by the German pharmaceuticals company.
The judge said he will decide in a month whether to keep the litigation on hold for more settlement talks or let more trials proceed. “We’ve got a bunch of cases we could send out to other jurisdictions,” he said.
“The cycle can only be broken by removing the product from the market,” said Chris Schnieders, a partner in the Kansas City office of Napoli Shkolnik and one of the attorneys who filed suit.
