St. Louis Jury Finds Johnson And Johnson Negligent, Again
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A St. Louis jury ruled last Thursday in a product liability case against
Johnson & Johnson. The St. Louis jury awarded a California woman more than $70 million.
The Modesto, California woman sued Johnson & Johnson, alleging that
years of using Johnson & Johnson's baby powder caused her cancer.
The trial that began on September 26 ended almost a month later. The plaintiff
was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2012, and she claimed is was caused
by Johnson & Johnson's baby powder. The lawsuit claimed Johnson
& Johnson was negligent in the making and marketing its baby powder
and the St. Louis jury agreed.
This case is just one of many that are raising concerns about the health
ramifications of extended
talcum powder use. Two other lawsuits in St. Louis in the last year ended in jury verdicts
worth a combined $127 million. A judge in New Jersey threw out two similar
cases claiming there wasn't reliable evidence that talc leads to ovarian
cancer. The trouble is far from over for the Johnson & Johnson Company,
with thousands of other similar lawsuits still pending.
