Roundup verdict: Fairness was ignored, politics ruled, Varney says
Fox Business | By Stuart Varney
A California couple claimed they got cancer from the weed killer Roundup. A jury agreed. They were awarded $2 billion. I call that a travesty of justice. A harsh judgment on my part, maybe, but new details are emerging, and we can see the danger of a politicized judiciary. In this case, fairness was ignored. Politics ruled.
The trial lasted weeks, but the jury took less than two days to arrive at that $2 billion award. Questioned later, some jurors made it clear they were in a mood to punish the Roundup makers.
