Judge Orders Johnson & Johnson to Pay $1 Billion Verdict

According to a lawyer for the plaintiffs, a federal jury on Thursday in Dallas ordered Johnson & Johnson and its orthopedics unit to pay $1 billion to six plaintiffs who said they were injured by Pinnacle hip implants that were defectively designed by the manufacturer. According to court records, the six plaintiffs in the case are California residents who experienced tissue death, bone erosion and other injuries they attributed to design flaws in the implants.
