Johnson & Johnson’s Talcum Powder Jury

Jurors Won’t Hear of Alleged Johnson & Johnson Conspiracy in Talc Trial

July 21, 2017
A judge refused to allow the plaintiff in the upcoming trial about the alleged health hazards posed Johnson & Johnson’s talc products to state in opening arguments that the company “conspired” to prevent warning labels from being affixed to its baby powder and talcum powder products.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Maren Nelson stated that plaintiff Eva Echeverria, who alleges that her terminal ovarian cancer has been caused by prolonged use of Johnson & Johnson’s talc-based products for feminine hygiene, lacked sufficient evidence to make the claims that J & J conspired with its talc supplier, Imerys Talc America, to persuade the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) not to regulate those products.

Judge Nelson last week dismissed Echeverria’s suit against Imerys, stating that talc is an “inherently safe” product.

Echeverria’s case against Johnson & Johnson is the first in a series of upcoming talc cases to be heard in a California court. Echeverria has been given by her doctors only months to live, so her trial was scheduled to take place first.

Of five recent talc trials in Missouri, Johnson & Johnson lost four of them, and has been ordered by juries to pay out more than $300 million in damages.

Jury selection for Echeverria’s trial is slated to commence on July 21.

If you have used baby powder, talcum powder, or any other talc-based product for a prolonged period of time, and have developed ovarian cancer, you may be eligible to participate in a lawsuit. Contact TheLawFirm.com to learn how we can help you.
