SCOTUS rejects Bayer’s appeal on Roundup case,  ruling won’t affect product availability

The Supreme Court has denied an appeal from Bayer that would’ve ended thousands of lawsuits claiming that Roundup causes cancer.

Bayer says the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) says federal law pre-empts state regulations for different product labels, but the high court said it didn’t agree. 

In a statement to Brownfield, the company says it respectfully disagrees with the court’s decision because it undermines the ability of companies to rely on actions taken by regulatory agencies.
