Monsanto is facing a class action lawsuit for falsely advertising Roundup as safe. A growing number of individual lawsuits have also been filed by people who developed cancer or non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Class actions have already been filed against Monsanto for downplaying risks associated with Roundup. However, these class actions are not designed to maximize compensation for people with severe injuries. Instead, they are seeking refunds on behalf of everyone who bought Roundup.
Roundup Class Action Over False Advertising
In April 2015, a Roundup class action lawsuit (PDF) was filed in Los Angeles, California in (Case No. BC-578-942). Monsanto claims Roundup is safe because it targets an enzyme that is found in plants, but not people. Lawyers say this claim is “blatantly false” and misleading. Roundup targets the enzyme EPSP synthase, which is found in weeds, plants, bacteria, fungi, algae, and other microbes. In the human digestive system, over 100 trillion bacteria produce EPSP synthase.
Roundup Lawsuits Filed by Cancer Victims
In October 2015, Reuters reported that The Clark Firm, LLP was offering free case evaluations for people injured by Roundup. Lawsuits have already been filed by victims in Texas, including farm-workers and landscapers who were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Click here to read more.
Roundup Lawsuits Centralized in California
In October 2016, federal judges established a Multi-District Litigation (MDL No. 2741) to centralize dozens of Roundup lawsuits in the Northern District of California. Lawyers accuse Monsanto of failing to warn about non-Hodgkin lymphoma. They also say Roundup contains a toxic combination of glyphosate with the chemical POEA, which is more dangerous than glyphosate alone.
What is the problem?
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm in Texas. However, our trial lawyers are not currently filing a Roundup class action against Monsanto. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits on behalf of people who were diagnosed with cancer, such as:
- Non-Hodgkin lymphoma
- Large Diffuse B-cell
- Follicullar Lymphoma
- Cutaneous T-Cell
- Anapalastic T-cell
- Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
- Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma
- Mantle Cell Lymphoma
- Primary Central Nervous System (CNS) Lymphoma
About Class Actions
Class actions are the most popular way for large groups of people to seek justice for the same legal claim. Good examples include refunds for defective products or compensation for discrimination and fraud. Members join together and share any payout.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action
The problem with class actions is that they can have major disadvantages for individuals with severe injuries. It is extremely rare for consumer class actions to go to trial, which means most cases never go before a judge or jury. Another problem is that members may have to accept “low-ball” settlements or higher attorneys’ fees.
Instead of a class action, our lawyers provide personal legal representation for people who were severely injured by dangerous medications. We specialize in holding companies accountable for failing to warn about side effects. If you decide to join this rapidly-growing litigation, you could receive compensation for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, and more.
