MISSOURI (WSYR-TV) — The Supreme Court is leaving in place a $2 million verdict against Johnson & Johnson.
Nearly two dozen women filed suit, claiming they developed ovarian cancer from the company’s talc products. Johnson & Johnson argued it wasn’t treated fairly in the trial which involved 22 cancer sufferers.
A Missouri jury initially awarded the women almost $5 billion, but a state appeals court lowered the amount. The high court did not say why it rejected J&J’s appeal.
