Johnson & Johnson is playing defense, again. On Monday, a jury sided with a South Dakota woman who claims the company’s talcum powder caused her ovarian cancer.
The jury ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay Gloria Ristesund a total of $55 million in damages. Ristesund was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2011, underwent a hysterectomy and other surgeries and is now in remission.
Monday’s ruling comes just a few months after the company was ordered to pay $72 million to the family of an Alabama woman who died of ovarian cancer.
