Johnson & Johnson Wins Hip Implant Jury Trial in Chicago

A Johnson & Johnson unit defeated at trial an Illinois woman’s claim she was harmed by a defectively designed metal-on-metal hip implant.

The jury of seven women and five men in state court in Chicago deliberated for slightly more than a day before returning its verdict yesterday in favor of DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. Plaintiff Carol Strum’s lawyers had asked the panel for an award of at least $5 million.
