A $10.9 million verdict stands in a Topamax birth defects lawsuit. A child born with Topamax birth defects—a cleft lip and oral defects—was at the center of the case. The child’s family filed their Topamax lawsuit claiming that the anti-seizure drug caused the birth defects.
A Pennsylvania appeals court agreed with the family’s claim and the jury verdict.
According to a report from Reuters, the Pennsylvania Superior Court in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania denied the request to overturn the jury verdict. Janssen, Topamax manufacturer, brought the appeal request.
