J&J Slapped With Another Talc Cancer Verdict As More Claimants Line Up

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

J&J is ordered to pay $55m in damages to a woman who attributes her ovarian cancer to prolonged perineal use of the company's talc-based powders. The decision comes less than three months after a $72m finding against J&J in a similar case tried in the same St. Louis court, but this one may bode more ominously for the firm's prospects in a long line of related cases to come, plaintiff's counsel suggests.
