Bayer says it will address judges concerns at hearing

The federal judge overseeing the Bayer settlement over RoundUp said Monday he was tentatively included to reject the company’s plan to create a class action for future litigation.

Bayer has said it will set up a scientific panel to determine whether the glyphosate in RoundUp causes cancer while still allowing users to make claims.

In a statement to Brownfield, Bayer says it appreciates the Judge’s order raising his preliminary concerns with the proposed class settlement which they take seriously. Bayer says it will address those concerns at the preliminary approval hearing on July 24.” 

A Bayer spokesman says this has no impact on a farmer’s ability to spray and it doesn’t call into question the dicamba or PCB settlement.
