$110 Million Talcum Powder Lawsuit Settlement

May 4, 2017

TALCUM POWDER LITIGATION

 

Lois Slemp, of Virginia, had filed a lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson alleging she developed ovarian cancer in 2012 after using the company’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower products daily for 40 years.

 

On May 4, 2017, a Missouri jury awarded $66 million from J&J, $39 million from J&J Consumer and $50,000 from Imerys, J&J talc supplier, in punitive damages. The jury also awarded Slemp $5.4 million in compensatory damages and ascribed 99 percent of the fault to the two J&J entities and 1 percent of the fault to co-defendant Imerys.

 

Further St. Louis talc trials are set for June and July. The first California trial is set for July.
