J&J hit with $57 mln verdict in latest pelvic mesh trial

A Pennsylvania jury on Thursday found Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Ethicon liable for the injuries of a woman who had been implanted with two of the company’s pelvic mesh devices, awarding her $57 million, the highest in a pelvic mesh case to date.

The jury in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas found Ethicon defectively designed the devices and failed to warn plaintiff Ella Ebaugh of the risks associated with the mesh implants. The verdict includes $7.1 million in compensatory and $50 million in punitive damages.
