$500 Million DePuy Pinnacle Jury Award Slashed in Texas

Fort Worth, TX: An effort by defendant Johnson & Johnson (J&J) and its implant unit DePuy to have a $500 million DePuy Pinnacle jury award set aside has failed. US District Judge Ed Kinkeade in US District Court, Northern District of Texas refused to accept the defendant’s arguments that jurors were biased through hearing unfair and irrelevant evidence during the defective hip implant trial, and that a new trial was warranted.
