22-plaintiff talcum powder trial begins in St. Louis

  • 0

ST. LOUIS • Jury selection in another talcum powder trial began Monday in St. Louis over claims baby powder products made and sold by Johnson & Johnson contributed to ovarian cancer in women.

The trial starting St. Louis this week has 22 plaintiffs making claims against the healthcare giant. One of the plaintiffs is a woman from O'Fallon, Mo. The trial is expected to last about six weeks. 

Several talcum powder trials in St. Louis have ended in multimillion verdicts against Johnson & Johnson. The company has appealed those verdicts from St. Louis juries. Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court imposed limits on where injury lawsuits can be filed.
