The MDL is a consolidation of all pre-trial proceedings for cases filed in the US Federal Court. Judge Vince Chhabria of the Northern District of California in San Francisco oversees the proceedings.
The Hardeman case is Case Number: 3:16-cv-00525
Title: HARDEMAN v. MONSANTO
DeWayne Johnson vs. Monsanto Company
Verdict: Plaintiff (Unanimously!) Monsanto is currently appealing the decision.

The Johnson case serves as the bellwether for the thousands of similar cases filed by plaintiffs who claim that exposure to Roundup caused their Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.
