Monsanto Glyphosate Lawsuit: Expert Testimony Deemed Credible Enough for Trial

Monsanto Glyphosate Lawsuit: Expert Testimony Deemed Credible Enough for Trial August 8, 2018. By Lori Prapas.
San Francisco, CA Roundup Weed Killer has been used by homeowners, schools, gardeners, and farmers since its development in the 1970s. Its usage has increased exponentially since the 1990s when genetically modified organisms (GMOs) were developed that can survive heavy applications of Roundup, enabling farmers to kill all types of weeds but not the desired crops. In 2015, an arm of the World Health Organization (France-based International Agency for Research on Cancer “IARC”), designated glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, as a probable human carcinogen. Thousands of Monsanto glyphosate lawsuits over alleged Roundup cancer followed. Now Plaintiffs have cleared a crucial hurdle. A judge has ruled that the preliminary opinions of three experts linking glyphosate and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma were not “junk science,” and should be permitted for a jury’s consideration.

Energy Drink Lawsuits: Understanding Caffeine August 27, 2015. By Heidi Turner.
Baltimore, MD As far as substances go, energy drinks seem fairly harmless to most people. Need a quick boost of energy, ingest an energy drink and get some much-needed caffeine. People turning to energy drinks might need more caffeine than what a cup of coffee or a soda would provide, but would be forgiven for thinking that the caffeine in an energy drink isn’t any more harmful than the caffeine in a cup of coffee. But energy drink lawsuits allege caffeine overdoses are deadly, and consumers aren’t warned about the risks, especially the risks to adolescents who consume the highly caffeinated beverages.
