EPA offers support to Bayer during Roundup appeals

Facing a lawsuit from consumers can be a major blow to companies. Even more significant is if the court does not rule in favor of the company. As a result, business owners may either have to handle the repercussions of the court's ruling or follow up with appeals. In some cases, appealing a negative outcome could have benefits.

Florida readers may be interested in Bayer's attempts to appeal the outcomes of lawsuits brought against the company. The claims relate to Roundup, a weed-killing product manufactured by Bayer, causing cancer in its users. Currently, as the result of a previous court ruling, Bayer is set to remit $25 million in a case brought by a man who claimed that his cancer resulted from Roundup use. The amount of the award was reduced by a judge, but the overall ruling that the product was defective because it did not provide a cancer warning was upheld.

More recently, the Environmental Protection Agency indicated that it reviewed and approved the label on the product. The EPA reportedly stated earlier this year that ingredients in Roundup do not pose risks to public health when used properly. Bayer indicated that the company feels encouraged by the EPA and hopes that the statement will bolster its appeals case.

When court cases do not rule in favor of companies, the outcomes can be difficult to handle. However, as this case shows, companies do not have to let their cases end after a negative outcome. Appeals can often help companies gain a second chance at a more favorable outcome, and if Florida companies are interested in continuing their cases in a similar manner, they may want to gain information on their options.
