U.S. judge appoints Ken Feinberg mediator in mandated Bayer Roundup settlement talks

May 22 (Reuters) - A U.S. judge has appointed prominent attorney Kenneth Feinberg as mediator for court-mandated settlement talks in the federal litigation over allegations that Bayer AG's glyphosate-based Roundup weed killer caused cancer.

Feinberg has been instructed to meet with lawyers for Bayer and plaintiffs within the next 14 days, U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria in San Francisco said during a court hearing on Wednesday. (Reporting by Tina Bellon in New York Editing by Bill Berkrot)
