Case Study: The Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder Cases



This case study looks at a California case brought against Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiary, Johnson & Johnson Consumer, Inc. The lawsuit is based on allegations that genital application of talcum powder causes ovarian cancer. The plaintiff sued in state court in California and won multi-million dollar verdicts, though these were set aside by the trial court judge. This presentation analyzes the appeal of that decision and the California appellate court analysis and decision.
