A jury on May 23, 2018 rendered a verdict in favor of a plaintiff who has pleural mesothelioma, agreeing with her that the J&J talc which she used was a substantial contributing factor to arising the disease. The jury awarded her $21, 752,508.16 and then added $4 million in punitive damages. The jury was unanimous 12-0 on every question on the Verdict Sheet. They held J&J 67% liable (because she was also exposed to asbestos elsewhere).
