    Glyphosate case: US Judge lowers damage award against Bayer

    “It's quite clear that under the Constitution I'm required to reduce the punitive damages award and it's just a question of how much,” Judge Chhabria said

    A U.S. judge on Tuesday said he would reduce a US$80 million damage award against Bayer AG to US$50 million or less in the case of a man who blamed his cancer on glyphosate-based weed killer Roundup. U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria in San Francisco said the jury's US$75 million punitive damages award to plaintiff Edwin Hardeman in March could not stand.
