Many legal complaints (1654 as of October 2018) against Monsanto from Roundup users diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphomas have been regrouped at the Northern District of California District Court. 7/10/2018, Judge Vince Chhabria concluded a reasonable jury could find that glyphosate can cause non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma at exposure levels people realistically may have experienced. Hearings will begin with Hardeman v. Monsanto (3:16-cv-00525) on 2/25/2018. Then there will be the cases of Stevick v. Monsanto and Gebeyehou v. Monsanto (3:16-cv-0581) on 5/6/2018. On Jan. 3, the judge decided to "bifurcate" the 3 bellwether cases, which means that only the evidence that Roundup contributed to the plaintiffs' cancer will be examined in a first phase, and only if the answer is yes will Monsanto's pressuring and lobbying tricks be examined.
