Major baby powder case ends in multi-billion-dollar verdict

A jury in another state recently awarded $550 million in damages to 22 women who sued the baby powder manufacturer Johnson & Johnson. In addition to this decision, the jury also dropped a bombshell punitive damages award of over $4 billion.

Gynecological mesh suits largest mass tort since asbestos

What is "Multi-District Litigation"?

A previous post on this blog referred to a series of trials that will soon take place regarding a "physiomesh" surgical mesh product that unfortunately wound up injuring several patients. These legal cases are subject to what is called "multi-district litigation" and, although filed by various victims around the country, are being managed by a federal court which happens to serve Rome, Georgia.

Trials over surgical mesh to start next year

As part of a nationwide medical product liability case that is being overseen by a federal court in Northern Georgia, several trials are in the process of being scheduled. These so-called "bellwether" trials, which will be the first involving the "physiomesh" product manufactured by a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, are slated to start in September 2019.
