Farmers Vs. Monsanto: Glyphosate Showdown Comes to US Court in San Francisco; “Science Week” in a federal court will decide if farmer cancer lawsuits move forward
San Francisco, Calif.; March 5, 2018 — A federal court hearing in San Francisco this week will turn a spotlight on the science surrounding the world’s most widely used pesticide, glyphosate, and determine whether farmers and their families will be able to proceed with legal action against Monsanto Co. over cancer concerns.
Carey Gillam will be at the courthouse and live blogging starting at 10 a.m. PT

#MonsantoPapers page on the @USRighttoKnow website has all the key documents and analysis from Farmers Vs. Monsanto cancer cases
More than 365 lawsuits are pending against Monsanto in U.S. District Court in San Francisco, filed by people alleging that exposure to Roundup herbicide caused them or their loved ones to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and that Monsanto covered up the risks.
The court has dubbed the March 5-9 events as “science week” because the only evidence to be presented will come from experts in cancer science, including epidemiologists, toxicologists, and biomedical statistical analysts called to analyze relevant research. The scientists will present their best scientific evidence to U.S. Judge Vince Chhabria, who will decide if the lawsuits move forward or are halted in their tracks.
