Northern California Record | Rich Peters
Four amicus briefs have been filed in the California Court of Appeals in the case of Dewayne Johnson v. Monsanto raising “concerns about the methods used to determine medical causation and the award of punitive damages in the Johnson case, as well as the reliance of businesses and consumers on regulatory approvals,” said a media representative for Bayer.
One brief was filed jointly by the California Medical Association (CMA), California Dental Association (CDA) and California Hospital Association (CHA), who combined represent a substantial portion of the state’s health care providers. Another brief was filed by Genentech Inc., a California-based leader in biotechnology. Both the California Farm Bureau Federation (CFBF), the largest farm organization in the state, and the Civil Justice Association of California (CJAC) filed separate briefs as well.
