About the Lawsuit
Bayer and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On June 7, 2018, the Company completed its acquisition of Monsanto, known for its flagship weed killer product, Roundup, despite broad and protracted litigation pending against it in state and federal courts alleging cancerous conditions caused by exposure to the product and its failure to warn of the toxic effects. On March 19, 2019, in the first federal case filed against Monsanto to proceed to trial, the jury found that the plaintiff's "exposure to Roundup was a substantial factor in causing his non-Hodgkin's lymphoma."
On this news, the price of Bayer's shares declined.
The case is City of Grand Rapids General Retirement System and City of Grand Rapids Police & Fire Retirement System v. Bayer Aktiengesellschaft, 20-cv-04737.
