Next California preference trial set for March 18, 2019

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

November 15, 2018

The legal team that achieved the victory on behalf of Mr. Dewayne Lee Johnson against Monsanto Company is taking on a preference trial granted today on behalf of husband and wife, Alva and Alberta Pilliod against Monsanto.  Mr. and Mrs. Pilliod both have non-Hodgkin lymphoma following years of Roundup exposure.  Their lawyers requested their case be expedited due to the status of their health. California Superior Court Judge Ioana Petrou issued the order today granting the Pilliods a trial date of March 18, 2019.

This will be the first case to be tried as part of the Roundup Judicial Council Coordination Proceedings (JCCP No. 4953) in California Superior Court for the County of Alameda inOakland, California.

The Miller Firm LLC and Baum Hedlund Aristei & Goldman will once again join forces to try this case.

Please let me know if you want the order.

I will updating our Monsanto Roundup Trial Schedule page tomorrow.

Press Conference

The sky is sparkly blue this afternoon, and a solid breeze has blown the smoke out of the City. I know this may seem incredibly hokey, but what I just witnessed inside the courtroom makes me see this entire Civic Center with fresh eyes. City Hall is particularly grand on this August 10, 2018, and the mall of flags outside seems especially vibrant and symbolic. What happened today is so much bigger than any of us.

As I walk over to law offices on Van Ness Avenue, I have pride on a national level that this justice system can successfully hold corporations like this accountable. I have even greater pride in what my hometown, home state and fellow citizens have done today. California – home of the “Liberal Moron Zombies” – is nothing if not innovative and creative, and I am overflowing with pride that we can suggest to the world what needs to be done and what can be done to recoup the health that so many of us have lost to the hands of glyphosate.

I am bursting with pride that California looks to IARC as a solid, independent, and highly scientific information source on carcinogens, and that Prop 65 exists to make sure that we correctly heed their warnings. In a state with an enormous agricultural sector, we absolutely must educate our farmworkers and provide them with the protective gear they need, until one day this poison can be banned altogether.

The broadcasting folks have made their way over to the law office, and are filming outside the front doors. Two guys walking up the street are intrigued by the cameras, and I explain that a jury just determined that RoundUp causes cancer. They think I’m kidding. They think I am kidding only because they thought everyone already knew that RoundUp causes cancer and “a whole lot of other sh!t!” And that is why it took us a week to find an unbiased jury panel.

When I enter the office, a backdrop with the law firm’s name has been placed behind a podium. Camera operators fight for a decent filming spot, and hook up their respective microphones. I take a seat in the back of the room. Through some glass doors, I see the whole gang of lawyers beaming with relief and joy, and Lee Johnson still cool, collected, and I think very much relieved.

When 5:30 arrives, the filming lights turn on, and Mark Burton stands with Lee Johnson, Brent Wisner, David Dickens, Bobby Kennedy and Michael Baum.  Burton states: “The truth has come out, RoundUp does cause cancer.” After a classy introduction and welcome, the microphone is handed to Lee.

Lee shows no signs of nerves in delivering a beautiful speech about what this verdict means for him personally, as well as the impact the jury decision will have on everyone else that RoundUp has touched. He graciously thanks the jury and legal team, with a particularly strong shout out to Tim Litzenberg and Mike Miller (who I still haven’t met, due to his injury just before the trial opened). “This case has been very hard. It’s been fought long. It took a lot of time to get here and these guys did a lot of work and I’m very proud of each of you.” He continues: “This case is way bigger than me. Hopefully this thing will start to get the attention it needs.” I desperately want this man to be cured. He has so much more brightness to offer this world.

This has been an emotional ride for those ifs whom know what Monsanto is about.

Thank you GG…for allowing me to post your work and link your site here. Look forward to what is next.

I’ve noticed the Monsanto Propaganda Machine has gone silent across the numerous social media platforms. I wonder how many other voices like mine has been silenced from being ‘banned from commenting” like I have been on Industry Shill Propaganda sites like Genetic Literacy Project. FYI…. I wear the banning as a badge of honor. They will never silence #Truth.

Until Next Time
