Johnson and Johnson (J&J) is in court fighting lawsuits alleging asbestos in talc has resulted in mesothelioma from talcum powder products such as baby powder. J&J recently settled a lawsuit on the verge of trial, but took a second trial to verdict.
In the Circuit Court of the 11th Judicial District for Miami-Dade Florida, a jury found Johnson & Johnson liable for causing mesothelioma in a baby powder purchaser. The jury awarded the plaintiff $9 million in total, $3 million for medical expenses related to her terminal diagnosis and $6 million for pain and suffering. J&J claims they will appeal the verdict.
