Bayer Statement on Defense Verdict in Gordon
Bayer today issued the following statement on the defense verdict in the Gordon trial:
“The jury’s verdict in favor of the company brings this trial to a successful conclusion and is consistent with the evidence in this case that Roundup™ is not responsible for the plaintiff’s illness. The company now has won seven consecutive trials including the Clark, Stephens, Shelton, Johnson, Alesi, Ferro, and Gordon cases.
“While we have great sympathy for the plaintiff in this case, the jury has weighed the evidence from both sides in this case and concluded that Roundup™ is not responsible for her injuries. This decision is consistent with the assessments of expert regulators worldwide as well as the overwhelming evidence from four decades of scientific studies concluding that Roundup™ can be used safely and is not carcinogenic.
“We continue to stand behind the safety of Roundup™ and will confidently defend the safety of our products as well as our good faith actions in any future litigation.”
