$417 Million California Verdict Thrown Out

By October 30, 2017Personal Injury

In California, Judge Maren Nelson threw out a $417 million verdict against Johnson & Johnson, stating that the case was underpinned by errors and insufficient evidence on both sides, which led to excessive damages.

The verdict came in response to a lawsuit filed by a woman who claimed she developed ovarian cancer after using Johnson & Johnson’s talc-based baby powder for feminine hygiene.  She accused Johnson & Johnson of inadequately warning consumers about the cancer risks of its talc-based products.

Johnson & Johnson faces lawsuits by 4,800 plaintiffs across the country asserting talc-related claims.
