Johnson & Johnson’s Talcum Powder trial update
Judge Tosses Johnson & Johnson Talc Suit in New Jersey
July 18, 2017
A federal judge in New Jersey has tossed a proposed class action suit against Johnson & Johnson over the potential links between ovarian cancer and its talc-based products.
Judge Freda Wolfson tossed the case because Mona Estrada, who had filed it, had not proven that she had suffered or will suffer any injuries from using Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powder products.
Judge Wolfson also ruled that Estrada had not proven that Johnson & Johnson was legally obligated to disclose the risks associated with its talcum powder and/or baby powder products; to this, Estrada replied that she had been purchasing and using the products for feminine hygiene for some 65 years, since well before the time that such warnings would have been disclosed.
Johnson & Johnson has lost four or five talc lawsuits in the state of Missouri, and is currently enmeshed in another talc trial in California. So far, the company has had to pay out more than $300 million in settlements.
Estrada has been given 30 days to amend her complaint.
