J&J ordered to pay $4.14 billion in talc cancer case
The jury ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $550 million in compensatory damages, and unanimously decided to award punitive damages.
The trial was the largest case that J&J has yet faced over allegations that its talcum powder products cause cancer. The verdict in the Circuit Court of the City of St. Louis came down after a more than five-week-long trial during which jurors heard testimony by nearly a dozen experts.
