U.S. judge denies Monsanto new trial in California glyphosate case

(Reuters) – A U.S. judge conditionally denied Bayer AG-unit Monsanto’s motion to receive a new trial on the $250 million punitive damages portion of a recent jury verdict that found the company’s glyphosate-based weed-killers, including RoundUp, responsible for a man’s terminal cancer.

According to a Monday filing in San Francisco’s Superior Court of California, Judge Suzanne Bolanos also denied Monsanto’s motion for judgment notwithstanding the verdict in the glyphosate case.
