  • Prior to this month’s trial, Bayer won six Roundup verdicts in a row, including a Nov. 9 defense win in the same courtroom before St. Louis County Circuit Judge Brian May.
  • Bartlit Beck partners Kat Hacker and Mark Ouweleen represented Bayer, along with Christine Miller of Husch Blackwell.
  • Aimee Wagstaff and Fidelma Fitzpatrick represented plaintiff Sharlean Gordon, who was diagnosed in 2006 with non-Hodgkin lymphoma after years of spraying Roundup in her Illinois yard.

A Missouri jury took about five hours to deal Bayer its seventh win in a row over Monsanto’s Roundup pesticide.

The verdict, reached late Tuesday, came after closing arguments earlier that day in a trial that began about a month ago in Clayton, Missouri, near Monsanto’s St. Louis headquarters.
