Michael Langford filed a complaint against Monsanto because he is suffering from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) after having used Roundup herbicide between 1985 and 2019. He was diagnosed with NHL in 2007, and has since had five recurrences, multiple rounds of chemotherapyand a stem cell transplant. Plaintiff alleges strict liability – design defect and failure to warn, negligence, fraud, breach of express and implied warranties, and exemplary damages. On June 16, 2022, due to his worsening health conditions, plaintiff moves for an order granting a trial preference. On July 22, 2022, the Court grants plaintiff’s motion for preferential trial setting and sets the date of the trial at Nov. 7, 2022.
