UPDATE 1-Bayer says Oct. U.S. glyphosate trial delayed until February

A pending U.S. lawsuit over claims related to Bayer’s glyphosate-based herbicide Roundup has been delayed, the company said on Sunday, with a new court date set for February, 2020. “The Oct. 15, 2019 trial date for Winston v. Monsanto in St. Louis City has been postponed,” Bayer said in a statement. The lawsuit is the latest of several to be delayed as mediator Ken Feinberg tries to negotiate a settlement between the company and U.S. plaintiffs after a California jury in August last year found that Monsanto should have warned of alleged cancer risks.
