Attorneys who represent ovarian cancer plaintiffs say the firm will keep fighting to hold the pharma giant accountable for “one of the worst cases of corporate wrongdoing.”
"In one of the worst cases of corporate wrongdoing, J&J knew for decades that its Johnson’s Baby Powder contained asbestos and may cause deadly cancers like ovarian cancer and mesothelioma. For over half a century, they sold it and marketed it anyway. We are thrilled that our efforts to hold J&J accountable have finally resulted in this worldwide withdrawal. We will continue to fight as J&J attempts to avoid accountability to cancer victims through a fraudulent misuse of the US Bankruptcy code."
Chris Tisi, Attorney, Levin Papantonio Rafferty and co-chair of the Plaintiffs’ Discovery for In Re: Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder Products Marketing, Sales Practices and Products Liability Litigation, MD 2738 (D.N.J.).
