Mass Torts to Watch in 2022

After a pandemic-induced quiet year in 2020, last year saw a lot of action on the mass tort front. In 2021, we saw $11 billion in Roundup settlements and over a dozen bellwether test trials in various MDL class action lawsuits.

It appears 2022 will be a very eventful year for mass torts. We could see global settlements in two or maybe three major mass tort MDLs, including the biggest of them all, the 3M Earplugs MDL.

Let’s talk about what we can expect in 2022 in the mass tort class action lawsuits with the highest predicted settlement payouts.

Monsanto Roundup Lawsuit Update 2021

As of December 2021, Monsanto has reached settlement agreements in nearly 100,000 Roundup lawsuits. Monsanto paid approximately $11 billion. Bayer has accomplished this by negotiating block settlement arrangements with plaintiffs’ lawyers who have large numbers of cases in the litigation.

30,000 Roundup Cases Left… and Counting
Although these settlements account for nearly 80% of all pending Roundup claims, there are still about 26,000 active Roundup lawsuits. Moreover, new Roundup lawsuits continue to get filed on a regular basis. Our Roundup attorneys call from Roundup victims with NHL almost every day.

Unfortunately, Bayer has not yet finalized a settlement yet.

Roundup MDL Judge: Plaintiffs’ Attorney’ Free-Rider Obsession Is Out Of Control

The federal judge overseeing multidistrict litigation over Bayer AG’s Roundup weedkiller has put narrow limits on a fund for common-benefit legal work, calling the lead plaintiffs’ lawyers request to hold back 8.25% of Roundup-related recoveries around the country regardless of their connection to the MDL “breathtaking.”

U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria in San Francisco on Monday ordered a hold-back of 8% of recoveries by MDL plaintiffs only, adding that the federal court systems’ Civil Rules Advisory Committee “should consider crafting a rule that brings some semblance of order and predictability to an MDL attorney compensation system that seems to have gotten totally out of control.”
