J&J's suffers a $417 million loss in the first California Talcum Powder Trial

  • J & J : News

One of the largest verdicts was announced in favor of the plaintiff this August by a California jury: J&J was ordered to pay $417 which included $347 million in punitive damages and $70 million in compensatory damages, making it one of the highest verdict amounts for a Talcum powder trial.

In January 2017, a California state judge had scheduled an early July trial for the plaintiff Eva Echeverria, a woman who alleged that she had less than six months to live due to ovarian cancer caused by Johnson & Johnson's talcum powder. The case proceeded as per the order with evidence produced by the plaintiff's end by an epidemiologist who opined that after reviewing the general link between the use of talcum powder and ovarian cancer, he felt that the talcum could cause ovarian cancer. However, he stated that he had not reviewed details of Ms. Echeverria's case.

This was also the first trial set in the coordinated proceedings in Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder Cases: JCCP 4872 in California, involving hundreds of plaintiffs. In addition to the federal lawsuits pending against J&J and other defendants, there are also around 3,000 talcum powder cancer lawsuits pending in state courts throughout the country and similar litigations are filed in Missouri, New Jersey, and Delaware state courts, as well as New Jersey Federal Court.
