MDL 2741 Makes It Easier to Build a Case Against Monsanto

Multidistrict litigation allows plaintiffs, the courts, and the defendants alike to navigate the system faster and with less expense. When there are as many plaintiffs with similar cases as there are in the Monsanto multidistrict litigation, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation will generally consider consolidating them into a mass tort. MDLs are a special type of mass tort that works by:

  • Grouping most of the similar cases filed in federal court into one MDL
  • Handling discovery and pre-trial motions like a single case
  • Choosing a few of the cases to hear first, as bellwether trials
  • Allowing both sides to see how juries react to the evidence presented in these bellwether trials
  • Encouraging both sides to reach settlements or drop their cases dependent on the outcome of the bellwether trials
  • Returning any remaining cases to their original jurisdictions for trial

MDLs allow the courts to move many cases through the federal court system quickly, and plaintiffs share the costs related to discovery and building a case against a large corporation.

As of October 2019, bellwether cases are underway in MDL 2741. The outcomes from the first bellwether trials, as well as trials in state courts, have been extremely positive for plaintiffs. Multiple juries have agreed there is a link between glyphosate herbicide and non-Hodgkin lymphoma and ordered Monsanto to pay out millions of dollars in compensatory damages as well as large punitive awards.

You May Qualify to Join MDL 2741 or Take Other Legal Action

You may qualify to take legal action against Monsanto and its parent company Bayer AG in a Round-Up lawsuit if you:

  • Previously had non-Hodgkin lymphoma and used a glyphosate-based herbicide; or
  • Currently have non-Hodgkin lymphoma and previous used Round-Up weed killer; or
  • Lost a member of your immediate family to non-Hodgkin lymphoma and wonder if their Round-Up use may have caused their cancer

Most plaintiffs in the cases heard so far had repeated exposure to glyphosate at much higher levels than most homeowners. It is possible to pursue damages if you used Round-Up at home and developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma, but many of the plaintiffs in these cases were farmers, landscapers, lawn workers, other agricultural workers, or workers who produced glyphosate products.
