A 70-year-old California man was awarded $ 80 million in damages over his claim that a weed killer caused his cancer.
A six-person jury in San Francisco returned the amount for Edwin Hardeman on Wednesday. The same jury previously found that Roundup-brand weed killer was a substantial factor in his non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
