Matt Leckman to Serve as Lead Trial Counsel in Next California Roundup Trial
Updated: Jul 24
In just several weeks, the next trial involving Roundup exposure and a case of terminal non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), Bruce Jones v. Monsanto et al., will take place in Hollister, California. The plaintiff is represented by a group of attorneys, including Leckman Law, and Matt Leckman will serve as lead trial counsel for Mr. Jones and his family. Jury selection is set to start on August 7 in San Benito County Superior Court.
Mr. Jones alleges that he was exposed to Roundup -- on and through his skin -- almost daily over the course of a 40+ year period. In 2021, he was diagnosed with a rare form of NHL, known as Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia. His lawsuit claims that the maker of Roundup (Monsanto, which has since been acquired by Bayer) should have known about the risk of cancer posed by its billion-dollar weedkiller but failed to adequately study Roundup or warn about its risks. Mr. Jones has undergone extensive chemotherapy and cancer treatment in connection with his NHL. The lawsuit seeks damages for Mr. Jones' pain and suffering, as well as punitive damages to punish the company for what the plaintiffs claim was bad corporate conduct.
