The Wall Street Journal: Judge reduces Roundup punitive-damages verdict by $55 million

A federal judge Monday cut down by $55 million a verdict tying Bayer AG’s Roundup weedkiller to cancer, as the company continues to battle thousands of similar claims throughout the U.S.

The ruling comes in the case of Northern California resident Edwin Hardeman, who won a more than $80 million jury verdict in a case linking his non-Hodgkin lymphoma to yearslong Roundup use on his residential properties.
