Monsanto is one of the largest corporations in the world, earning nearly $5 billion in revenue from Roundup in 2015. Roundup has been aware of the dangers their products, and they have taken deliberate steps to avoid recalls to continue making profit.

Jury verdicts thus far have been substantial, and they have additionally included large awards for punitive damages, which are a special form of damages awarded when defendants’ conduct is egregious enough to warrant additional punishment.
