Multi-Billion Dollar Verdict Against Johnson & Johnson is Upheld
Rob Dassow is proud to have been part of the trial team responsible for securing a $4.69 billion verdict against Johnson & Johnson in St. Louis on behalf of 25 women who developed ovarian cancer after daily use of Johnson’s Baby Powder.
Johnson & Johnson appealed the verdict, and a Missouri appellate court has unanimously upheld $2.11 billion of a $4.69 billion jury verdict, determining Johnson & Johnson they engaged in “reprehensible conduct” by manufacturing and selling asbestos-containing talcum powder products over the course of many decades. The Missouri Supreme Court denied Johnson & Johnson’s request to reexamine the $2.11 billion verdict.
