Ms. Jackie Fox died of ovarian cancer in 2015. She was only 62. Like many, Ms. Fox used Johnson & Johnson's ("J&J") Baby Powder and other talcum based products for years as a daily feminine hygiene product. Believing her ovarian cancer developed as a direct result and claiming J&J knew that talcum powder causes ovarian cancer, but hid the dangers, her family sued the company. This past February, a jury in St. Louis, Missouri agreed and awarded the family $72 million in damages, of which $62 million were punitive. In April, another family tried their claim againt J&J under similar circumstances, and the jury returned a verdict of $55 million. So, how did we get here?
