US Supreme Court rejects chemical maker's weedkill (22nd Jun 22 at 4:45am UTC)
US Supreme Court rejects chemical maker's weedkiller appeal

America's highest court has delivered a setback to German chemical maker Bayer AG, which is battling thousands of US lawsuits over its weedkiller Roundup.

Bayer is defending against claims that it did not adequately warn of the herbicide's alleged cancer risks.

It said the fact that government regulators had approved the product should shield the firm from liability.

But the Supreme Court rebuffed the firm's appeal, exposing it to billions of dollars in potential legal claims.

The judges said they would not hear the case, leaving in place a ruling upholding a $25m award to a Roundup user in California, who had claimed that his use of the glyphosate-based product on his property led to his cancer.

On Tuesday, Bayer said it "respectfully" disagreed with the court's decision, saying it "undermined the ability of companies to rely on official actions taken by expert regulatory agencies".

Bayer is facing legal claims focused on the possible carcinogenic risks of glyphosate, the herbicide that Roundup and many other weedkillers are based on.

In 2015, the World Health Organization determined that glyphosate was "probably carcinogenic to humans", but it remains approved in the US and elsewhere, including Europe.

In a separate case last week, a federal appeals court ruled that the US Environmental Protection Agency had not adequately considered the risks to humans and the environment caused by glyphosate, which could force another review by regulators.

Bayer, which acquired the Roundup brand as part of its $63bn takeover Monsanto in 2018, has maintained that the chemical is safe.
