What is Rascal Weed Killer?

Landmark Roundup Trial Ends in $289 Million Award to Plaintiff
Monsanto took a massive hit following a California jury’s decision to award a former groundskeeper just shy of $290 million in a landmark case alleging the company’s Roundup weed killer causes cancer. The jurors ruled that Roundup and Ranger Pro products presented a “substantial danger” to the now 46-year-old Dewayne “Lee” Johnson, who developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma after using the spray for more than 2 years as a groundskeeper in San Francisco.
How Many Types of NHL Are There?
Most forms of the more than 70,000 new cases of non-Hodgkin lymphoma diagnosed each year in the U.S. each year can be broken up into two main subtypes: B-cell lymphomas and T-cell lymphomas. The subtype is based on whether the cancer cells develop in the body’s B-cells or T-cells, which are two forms of white blood cells.

Why Our Law Firm Is Filing Individual Lawsuits Opposed To a Class Action
In some instances, a class action may offer some advantages, as they aggregate a large number of individualized claims into one representational lawsuit. The aggregation can increase the efficiency of the legal process, lower the costs of litigation and in some cases offer the solution to a common problem wherein small recoveries do not provide the incentive for any individual or law firm to file an individual lawsuit.
However, a class action suit can also be a detriment to many class members, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees. At Schmidt & Clark, LLP we understand that our clients are suffering emotionally and economically due to loss of wages and/or high medical bills and we plan to maximize each client’s recovery by filing individual Rascal herbicide lawsuits on their behalf.
