Herbicide, Roundup, Glyphosate
Plaintiffs seek equitable relief on behalf of the general public, with all profits earned by Monsanto for sales of Roundup in D.C. to be deposited into a charitable fund for the raising of consumer awareness of the effects of glyphosate.
Superior Court of Washington DC, United States

Lawsuit is filed about the unlawful promotion, marketing, and sale of various Roundup Products, with the false statement that Roundup’s active ingredient, glyphosate, targets an enzyme that is not found “in people or pets.” 3.31.2018, judge rejected Monsanto's motion to dismiss. The case is allowed to go on with opinion published on April 30. The case is similar to 3:17-cv-00473.
