    MassDLA's Toxic Tort Committee

    Presents a

    Brown Bag Event

    "Glyphosate: Emerging Litigation Trend in MA and Beyond

    Speakers:  John Gardella, Esq.and Michaela Lancer, Esq., CMBG3 Law LLC

    Date:   Thursday, April 18, 2019        

    Time:  12:30 pm

    Place:  CMBG3 Law LLC, 265 Franklin St., 6th FL, Boston


         So far, the glyphosate litigation has been confined to two trials alleging that Roundup weed killer causes cancer in humans. With a $289 million award in the first trial, the number of cases filed exploded overnight. What is glyphosate, though? Is the science clear-cut that it causes cancer in humans? What do regulatory bodies say about glyphosate exposure levels? How has all of this come together in the past year to expand the scope of claims that are being filed, and what are the possible “next waves” of the glyphosate litigation?  All of these questions and more will be discussed at this brown bag lunch session. 

    Light lunch and refreshments will be served.
