A terminally ill man has been awarded $289 million in the first cancer-related trial against agricultural giant Monsanto.

Dewyane Johnson, 46, claimed in the lawsuit that his non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma was caused by his use of Roundup weedkiller and one other Monsanto product during his work as a school groundskeeper.

The jury in a San Francisco Superior Court on Friday unanimously ordered the company to award Johnson $250 million in punitive damages and $39 million in compensatory damages, according to the Associated Press.

The article goes on to state the following:

Monsanto pushed back on the verdict, vowing to appeal the case.

“We are sympathetic to Mr. Johnson and his family,” said company spokesman Scott Partridge. “We will appeal this decision and continue to vigorously defend this product, which has a 40-year history of safe use and continues to be a vital, effective, and safe tool for farmers and others.”
