New lawsuit filed against J&J over hip replacement product.

The Newark (NJ) Star-Ledger (12/28, McCarthy, 438K) reports that a new lawsuit has been filed against Johnson & Johnson over its hip replacement products in the wake of a $1 billion verdict against the company “in a similar case.” J&J “faces more than 8,000 suits for the DePuy Orthopaedics product.”

Another lawsuit has been filed against Johnson & Johnson over its hip replacement products, adding to the thousands of legal proceeding surrounding the devices.

The Indiana man filed the lawsuit in Middlesex County Superior Court on Dec. 9, just four days after a jury in Texas awarded six patients $1 billion in punitive damages in a similar case. The pharmaceutical giant faces more than 8,000 suits for the DePuy Orthopaedics product.
