Judge Vince Chhabria, overseeing the Roundup litigation has circulated a draft of a plaintiff fact sheet (PFS) after both the parties weighed in with suggested changes and additions to the document.
In the response filed on September 20 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, the plaintiffs argued that the personal medical history section remains to be “too broad and seeks information that is irrelevant to the claims in this case.”
Roundup manufacturer Monsanto faces more than 8,000 product liability lawsuits linking glyphosate presence in the weed killer to Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL). The Roundup multidistrict litigation (MDL No. 2741; In Re: Roundup Products Liability Litigation) is presided over by Judge Vince Chhabria, in the U.S. District Court of San Francisco.
