Reuters first to report U.S. judge limits evidence in trial over Roundup cancer claims

Reuters was first with the news that U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria, who is overseeing lawsuits alleging Bayer AG’s glyphosate-based weed killer causes cancer, has issued a ruling that could severely restrict evidence that the plaintiffs consider crucial to their cases. The order initially bars lawyers for plaintiff Edwin Hardeman from introducing evidence that the company allegedly attempted to influence regulators and manipulate public opinion. Company stock rose 6.6 percent after the report was published.
