Johnson & Johnson Pays $55M In Second Baby Powder Lawsuit

A woman from South Dakota was granted $5 million in compensatory damages and $50 million in punitive damages after she claimed Johnson & Johnson’s talcum powder-based products caused her ovarian cancer, reported by The New York Daily News.

This was the second lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson in the last three months. The baby powder lawsuit ruling came in St. Louis last week.

The jury deliberated eight hours Monday before ordering the company to pay $55 million to a South Dakota woman who blamed her ovarian cancer on years of talcum powder use. The ruling followed a $72 million award in February from another St. Louis jury to the family of an Alabama woman who died from ovarian cancer, which she said was caused by using Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder and other talcum products.

At least 1,200 other talcum powder-related lawsuits are pending, with about 1,000 of them in St. Louis, and another 200 in New Jersey, according to an attorney for the plaintiffs in both of the recent cases.
