'In a landmark decision, a New York state jury has decided that Johnson & Johnson (J&J) must compensate a woman who claims she was harmed by the company’s talc baby powder products, which we earlier reported have been identified as being contaminated with cancer-causing asbestos.
J&J has reportedly been ordered to pay out $300 million in punitive damages to the woman, who developed a rare asbestos-related cancer that she insists was caused by J&J baby powder. The ruling follows another similar one from earlier in the month, also decided by a New York state jury, that awarded $25 million in damages to Donna Olson, a 66-year-old woman who also developed cancer.
Meanwhile, another case that was heard in South Carolina the very same day as Olson’s was reportedly dismissed, as that jury cleared the company of all liability.
“With this verdict, yet another jury has rejected J&J’s misleading claims that its talc was free of asbestos,” stated Jerome Block, the lead trial attorney in the latest New York case.
“The internal J&J documents that the jury saw, once more laid bare the shocking truth of decades of cover-up, deception and concealment by J&J of the asbestos found in talc baby powder,” he added about the merits of the case.
These three cases are just a drop in the bucket, as J&J is reportedly facing some 13,000 more, all of which allege that the company’s talc products contain cancer-causing asbestos. J&J, however, continues to deny these allegations, insisting that multiple studies and tests conducted by regulators from all around the world confirm that J&J’s talc products are safe and asbestos-free.'
