IL Jury Awards $45M in a Mesothelioma Case Against Kenvue, Inc. and J&J

A jury in the Circuit Court of Cook County in Chicago found Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) and two subsidiaries liable in the asbestos-related death of a mother and grandmother, and awarded her family $45 million in damages.

The jury concluded that Theresa Garcia’s lifelong use of talc-based Johnson’s Baby Powder and other products was the cause of her mesothelioma, an always-fatal cancer of the lining of the lungs caused by exposure to asbestos. Laboratory testing has shown the presence of asbestos in some samples of Johnson’s Baby Powder.

The trial follows two Johnson & Johnson bankruptcy filings that stayed litigation in this and thousands of other cases involving asbestos and talc.
