November 9, 2020 — U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria in San Francisco is still in charge of almost 2,000 unresolved Roundup cases at this point in time.  According to Bayer, 1,861 out of the 3,787 of the plaintiffs have not settled.  Judge Chhabria paused the litigation and gave Bayer until November 2 to settle.  Because Judge Chhabria did not extend the stay, some cases could move toward trial.  Bayer has reportedly resolved around 88,500 out of approximately 125,000 filed and unfiled claims, saying that they are “fully committed” to settling litigation.
