Appeals court overturns $72M verdict against J&J in talc-related lawsuit

The Missouri Court of Appeals for the Eastern District reversed a $72 million verdict against Johnson & Johnson regarding the death of a woman from ovarian cancer after using the company's talc-based products, Reuters reported Oct. 17.

In February 2016, a jury in the circuit court of St. Louis awarded the family of Alabama resident Jacqueline Fox $10 million in actual damages and $62 million in punitive damages.

According to Reuters, the reversal ruling stemmed from a recent U.S. Supreme Court decision, which set limits on where lawsuits can be filed against companies which operate in multiple states.

The court said the lawsuit regarding the death of Fox should not have been tried in St. Louis, the news outlet reported.

The ruling comes after Johnson & Johnson filed a motion with a Los Angeles court in September, challenging a $417 million verdict against the company in a separate talc-related lawsuit.

Another St. Louis jury in May had ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay more than $110 million to plaintiff Lois Slemp. In March, a state court jury in Missouri ruled in the company's favor and rejected similar claims by plaintiff Nora Daniels.
