Lasso victim wins in appeals court in France

Paul Francois, who claims he was poisoned by Lasso pesticide, has won in appeals court in Lyon, France, but Monsanto says it will file an application to appeal to France’s highest court.

The Lyon Appeals Court  upheld a ruling in 2012 in which  Monsanto  was found guilty of chemical poisoning.

Francois said he suffered various neurological problems as a result of inhaling the herbicide.

Monsanto was ordered to fully compensate the grain grower for his ailments.

Monsanto's lawyer said that expert found no causal link between the alleged exposure and the health effects Francois claims.
