J&J Wins Dismissal of New Jersey Lawsuits Over Talc Claims

Johnson & Johnson persuaded a New Jersey judge to throw out two women’s lawsuits blaming the health-care company’s talcum powder for their ovarian cancers.

The women couldn’t produce sufficient medical evidence to show J&J’s Baby Powder caused cancer, Judge Nelson Johnson in Atlantic City concluded Friday. The talc suits were to be the first to be considered by a jury in New Jersey, according to court filings.
