Johnson & Johnson makes an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court to review baby powder verdict

J&J is asking the court to review the verdict in which a $2 billion verdict was handed down by a jury regarding J&J’s baby powder product. The court could decide as soon as Tuesday if they will hear the case.

Johnson & Johnson is asking for a Supreme Court review of a $2 billion verdict in favor of women who claim they developed ovarian cancer from using the company’s talc products.

At the root, Johnson & Johnson argues that the company didn’t get a fair shake in a trial in state court in Missouri that resulted in an initial $4.7 billion verdict in favor of 22 women who used talc products and developed ovarian cancer.
