Judge Reduces $500 Million Verdict Against J&J for Hip Implants

Reuters reports that a Federal judge has reduced a $500 million verdict against Johnson & Johnson “over allegedly defective metal-on-metal Pinnacle hip implants” to about $151 million. The judge “said he was compelled to reduce the verdict under a Texas state law limiting punitive damages according to a specific formula.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
