Good Law | Bad Law #141 - Monsanto Weed-Whacked: A Conversation w/ Timothy Litzenburg
Aaron Freiwald, Managing Partner of Freiwald Law and host of the weekly podcast, Good Law | Bad Law, is joined by attorney Timothy Litzenburg, a partner at Kincheloe, Litzenburg and Pendleton, to discuss the recent Monsanto litigation and the influx of similar cases regarding chemical companies and consumers’ health. Timothy is an expert in the field of chemical exposure law, representing the plaintiff who was awarded the $289 million verdict (later reduced to $78 million by the presiding judge) in August of 2018 in Dewayne “Lee” Johnson v. Monsanto.
In today’s conversation, Aaron and Timothy talk about the historic verdict as well as the implications it has had, and continues to have.
Timothy explains that in the wake of Mr. Johnson’s victory he realized the need for a firm dedicated to other Monsanto victims; subsequently, he started Litzenburg Cancer Law. Timothy and Aaron talk about the evolution of Mr. Johnson’s case but also ask questions about what it means for future cases. How does the truth come out? What is the developing science behind these cases? Let us know what you think; listen in as Aaron and Timothy break down this landmark Monsanto case and explore what may be next for chemical exposure cases.
