Bayer Proposes $2B Settlement Plan To Limit Claims Against Roundup
The plan would offer free medical exams and up to $200,000 compensation to those who get cancer after being exposed to Roundup herbicide.
The company behind Roundup weed killer wants to put a framework in place for any future claims of its product causing cancer but a federal judge is questioning the terms.
The proposed agreement would put people exposed to Roundup into a group, provide them with free medical exams and up to $200,000 in compensation if they were to get cancer.
But the judge has concerns about how the company plans to contact all those people and if the compensation is enough.
