Fourth Talcum Powder Case Goes to Trial

Despite Johnson & Johnson’s attempt to delay talcum powder litigation, the trial of Tennessee resident Nora Daniels, 56, began on February 6, 2017. Ms. Daniels alleges that years of using Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder caused her to develop ovarian cancer. Daniels was diagnosed in 2013 and had to endure chemotherapy and a hysterectomy. Today, Ms. Daniels is not only concerned about the possible return of the cancer, but has to deal with the after-effects of treatment.

Daniels' lawsuit, along with numerous others filed across the country, alleges that Johnson & Johnson knew for decades that use of its talcum powder products can cause ovarian cancer in women, but failed to provide adequate instructions and warnings on its products. Internal company documents show that Johnson & Johnson was “put on notice” of the risk as far back as the 1970s.

Three previous juries returned verdicts of $72 million, $55 million and $70 million in talcum powder cases. In addition to over 1,000 plaintiffs whose cases are filed in Missouri, Johnson & Johnson is facing litigation across the country.
