Bayer Statement on Decision in Pilliod Appeal
Bayer today released the following statement on the decision in the Pilliod appeal before the Court of Appeal of the State of California:
“We respectfully disagree with the Court’s ruling as the verdict is not supported by the evidence at trial or the law. Monsanto will consider its legal options in this case. Of note, Monsanto plans to file a petition with the U.S. Supreme Court this month to review another Roundup™ case, Hardeman v Monsanto, that raises many of the same legal questions at issue in this case.
We continue to stand strongly behind the safety of Roundup™, a position supported by four decades of extensive science and the assessments of leading health regulators worldwide that support its safe use.”
