J&J Ordered to Pay $3.27 Million Over Mesh Implant

Johnson & Johnson was ordered by a jury to pay $3.27 million to a woman who said a defectively designed vaginal-mesh implant eroded inside her and she had to have surgery.

Jurors in federal court in West Virginia today concluded J&J’s Ethicon unit was liable for Jo Huskey’s injuries, which she blamed on the company’s TVT-O mesh sling, according to the company. The sling is sold as a treatment for incontinence.
