WSJ editorial blames Roundup verdict on junk science

The Wall Street Journal ran an editorial yesterday entitled Round Up the Usual Lawyers, about the huge San Francisco jury verdict against Monsanto.  The editorial discusses the scientific evidence that Roundup does not cause cancer, and notes that the trial judge described the plaintiffs' punitive damages case as "thin."  Perhaps that means she will be inclined to grant Monsanto's post-trial motions and vacate the punitive award.
