Mediation Order Issued by Judge in Monsanto Cases
U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria issued a formal mediation order to Monsanto/Bayer and plaintiff attorneys on April 12. Mediation is a valuable tool in many court cases. The goal here is to reach a settlement between Monsanto/Bayer and those who developed cancer from Roundup™. Lawyers will represent greater than 1,000 individuals in the settlement talks. In his order, Chhabria said that both sides could propose a mediator. If they can’t agree on one, the court will appoint a mediator.
