If court costs rise too much Bayer might settle lawsuits over Roundup. The company, however, stressed it remains focused on defending Roundup against claims it causes cancer, Reuters reports.
“If we can settle nuisances at some point where the defense costs in preparing cases are higher than the potential settlement amounts, we will of course consider it from an economic standpoint,” said Werner Baumann, Bayer CEO to Reuters.
He continued by saying the company will “with all means” defend itself in the litigation. Read more here “Bayer CEO says would consider glyphosate settlement depending on costs.”
