Goldman Ismail Secures First Roundup Victory for Monsanto and Nouryon Surface Chemicals in Philadelphia

On March 5, 2024, Goldman Ismail secured a significant victory for Monsanto and Nouryon Surface Chemicals in the Philadelphia-based Roundup mass tort. The 12-person jury reached a defense verdict in less than two hours, finding Monsanto and Nouryon not negligent. This hard-fought victory came after plaintiff verdicts in three recent Philadelphia Roundup trials.

A Goldman Ismail team (Tarek Ismail, Shayna S. Cook, James T. Coleman, Caleb A. Kennedy, and Caroline Cordell Briggs) partnered with co-counsel Erin Leffler at Shook Hardy & Bacon and appellate counsel Michael Hoffman at Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner to secure Monsanto and Nouryon’s victory.
