Jennifer Snowden said her doctors suggested a mesh sling called an Abbrevo, manufactured by Ethicon, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. Snowden said her doctors promised no complications. “And I woke up from surgery screaming,” she said. 

Johnson & Johnson settled with Texas over what the state says were “deceptive trade practices,” but the settlement is not to be taken as “an admission or concession of any violation of law, rule, or regulation,” court documents say.

Johnson & Johnson agreed to pay 42 states a total of $116.9 million. The state of Texas will receive $8.8 million, to be split between the attorney general’s office and a fund that covers legal costs for the poor.

Victims like Snowden and Holcomb will get nothing.
