Johnson & Johnson Ordered to Pay $120M in Damages

Johnson & Johnson was ordered by a New York state court to pay upward of $120 million in incurred damages to a Brooklyn husband and wife after she successfully blamed her cancer diagnosis on asbestos exposure linked to the company’s baby powder products.

Justice Gerald Lebovits of the New York state supreme court branch in Manhattan ordered the court to play a reduced payout of a jury awarded $325 million settlement to $120 million to one Donna Olson, aged 67 her significant other, Robert Olson, aged 65.

The initial order came in May of 2019 after a benchmark 14-week long civil trial.

Lebovits ordered the initial settlement amount was too high and requested the Olsons to accept the $120 million amount or appeal in another trial handling overall damages.
