ROUNDUP WEEDKILLER LAWSUIT BACKGROUND

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Q: "What is a multidistrict litigation?"
    • A: "Multidistrict litigation is litigation pending in more than one federal district court involving common questions of fact. When such cases involve civil actions, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation may transfer them to any federal district court for coordinated and consolidated pretrial proceedings." - United States District Court, Northern District of Florida
  • Q: "Is this a class action lawsuit?"
    • A: No, it is not a class action lawsuit. Although the legal theories are the same for each case, the individual damages are different, and, therefore, cannot be a class action. Each individual case will be evaluated based upon the exposure to the risk (how often plaintiffs were exposed to the glyphosate in Roundup weedkiller) and the individual damage sustained (whether or not the plaintiff developed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma or other glyphosate-related injuries).
