Bayer has seen billions wiped off its market value since August, when a first U.S. jury found Bayer liable because Monsanto, acquired by Bayer for $63 billion last year, had not warned of the alleged risk from Roundup, which is based on active ingredient glyphosate.

It suffered a similar courtroom defeat [in March]  and more than 10,000 cases are pending.

U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria….said in a filing dated [April 11] that Bayer and another plaintiff, Elaine Stevick, were ordered to start confidential mediation.
