BREAKING: J&J Hit With $498M Verdict In 2nd Pinnacle Bellwether Trial

Johnson & Johnson was hit with an eye-popping $497.6 million verdict Thursday in the second bellwether trial in the multidistrict litigation over allegedly defective Pinnacle hip prosthetics manufactured by its DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. unit, a major win for the plaintiffs in the litigation who had this time put forth the consolidated claims of five patients alleging problems from the devices.

The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas jury reached the verdict on March 17th after hearing 37 days of testimony. The jury received the case late in the afternoon on March 10th and deliberated for four more days before reaching a verdict.
