US jury ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay 55 million dollar for causing cancer

US jury ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay 55 million dollar for causing cancer
05 May 2016 Current Affairs: US jury of St Louise on 2 May 2016 ordered Johnson & Johnson (J&J) to pay 55 million US dollars to a woman, Gloria Ristesund, who claimed that company’s talcum powder caused her ovarian cancer. It is the second such judgment against J&J in three months.

The verdict came after a three-week trial in Missouri state court. The Judges in their verdict awarded 5 million US dollars in compensatory damages and 50 million US dollars in punitive damages.Ristesund, in her suit claimed that she used J&J's talc-based powder products which include the Baby Powder and Shower to Shower Powder on her genitals for decades. And, she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and had to undergo a hysterectomy and related surgeries.

The verdict followed a 72 million US dollar jury award to the family of Jacqueline Fox, who died from ovarian cancer after years of using talc powder for feminine hygiene from the same court in February 2016.The only other case to be tried involving talc powder and ovarian cancer resulted in a mixed verdict in South Dakota federal court in 2013. While those jurors found J&J was negligent, they awarded no damages to the plaintiff, whose cancer was in remission at the time of the trial.
