Jury awards $289 million in damages to terminally ill victim in Roundup case

Dewayne Johnson sought around $400 million in punitive damages and $39 million in compensatory damages from Monsanto, the victim's attorney Timothy Litzenburg told news sources after his client was awarded $289,000,000 in damages in what was one of many financially successful outcomes victims have seen after bringing lawsuits against agricultural giant Monsanto.

Mr. Johnson's claims that he was diagnosed with terminal cancer were heard by a judge and jury, who saw to it that justice was served on his behalf. Although Mr. Johnson now suffers from terminal cancer because of Monsanto's failure to ensure the safety of those in farming community, his family will be provided for financially.

It was first reported by CNN last year that over 800 patients were bringing legal actions against Monsanto–all of them claimed Roundup was the cause of their non-Hodgkin's lymphoma diagnoses
