  1. In the US humans are (supposedly) innocent until proven guilty – unless the charge is heinous enough.
    Chemicals never get a presumption of innocence.
    The only thing truly known to cause cancer is damage to DNA.
    The damage, of course, has no memory of what caused it.
    It could easily have been the radioactive carbon-14 that naturally occurs (1 part per trillion of the carbon) in his (and everyone else’s) fruits and vegetables.

  2. Another lawyer suing in hopes of a nuisance settlement, and he/she can get their 30%.

  3. Until we get “Loser Pays” legislation enacted in the US. You will continue to get bogus lawsuits that have to be settled out of court just for PR purposes.

  4. Well, the suit was filed in California where victim status is sought out by almost everyone.
    I live in California, trust me, it’s something to behold.

  5. Ya like the way they point out this unfortunate fellow was a “Vietnam veteran”? As though that has any bearing. Ah, the rapacious parasite lawyers! Bless their little rotten souls.

  6. I knew this was coming when I started hearing the ambulance chaser ads on the radio asking if I have been exposed to Roundup.

    Tort reform needs to start with a taste of Bill Shakespeare’s idea.
