Bayer faces a payout of $1.56 billion after a Missouri jury present in favor of the plaintiffs who blamed its Roundup weedkiller for inflicting their cancers.

The resolution is the fourth in a row to go in opposition to Bayer throughout a roller-coaster five-year authorized battle over Roundup, the world’s hottest weedkiller, which included 9 straight victories for the corporate, in addition to earlier losses. The circumstances characterize tens of hundreds of claims from farmers and gardeners.
