SCOTUS rejects Bayer appeal in weedkiller case

The United States Supreme Court rejected on Monday an appeal from Bayer AG which sought to dismiss a ruling that its Roundup weedkiller causes cancer.

The court decided to uphold a ruling by a lower court in California that decided to award $87 million to Alberta and Alva Pilliod, who were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma after decades of using Roundup.

Last week, the US Supreme Court dismissed a similar appeal by the German pharmaceutical giant in another case alleging Roundup causes cancer.
