J&J Talc Suit Dismissals: Plaintiffs Lack Causation Thread For Proof Quilt

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

Following two plaintiff victories and hefty damages awards in a Missouri circuit court earlier this year, J&J succeeded last week in having a pair of talc cancer cases dismissed in New Jersey due to plaintiffs’ lack of compelling causation evidence.
