Jury Orders Johnson & Johnson to Pay $72 Million

The family of a woman who passed away after her battle with ovarian cancer was awarded $72 million by jurors in St. Louis, Missouri on Monday. For years plaintiff Jackie Fox had used Johnson & Johnson’s talc based products for cosmetic purposes without knowledge of its possibility to cause ovarian cancer. According to a recent article posted on Bloomberg Business:

“The case [of Jackie Fox] is the first in which a jury has awarded damages over J&J’s talc products.”[i]

The jury found J&J failed to warn of talc’s ability to cause ovarian cancer.

“It was really clear they were hiding something,” said forewoman Krista Smith, 39, of St Louis. “All they had to do was put a warning label on.”[ii]

Presently there are approximately 1,200 cases filed by women across the nation who have used J&J’s talc-based products and have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. The American Cancer Society estimates that out of the 22,280 women who will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer this year, 14,240 of them will die from it.[iii] The epidemiologist testifying for Fox estimated that about 10%, of the women who die have ovarian cancers linked to talc.[iv]
