depuy_hip_replacement_lawsuit_litigation_settlements_product_liabilityIn delivering their verdict on March 16, a jury in the Chicago DePuy Hip trial ruled in Johnson & Johnson and DePuy’s favor.

In an article from the New York Times, the jury released a verdict stating that neither Johnson & Johnson nor DePuy engaged in a misleading marketing campaign to promote the metal-on-metal hip implant.

In contrast to the Chicago DePuy Hip trial, in the first DePuy ASR Hip lawsuit to go to trial in California, the plaintiff Loren Kransky was awarded a compensatory award of $8.3 million.

With two DePuy ASR Hip lawsuits settled, Johnson & Johnson faces another 10,000 cases, some of which have been consolidated into a multidistrict litigation (MDL) in Ohio.
