      What!? Good for the judge? How about feeling bad to the women that lost their ovaries? J&J knowingly sold a product that caused cancer to women and never provided proper warning. This is akin to the tobacco industry’s willful denial of lung cancer. You need to check your conscience.

        Ovarian cancer has a low 5 year survival rate, just 44%. It has very few symptoms in the early stages when it is more treatable. It’s not just about losing ovaries, but losing your life. I agree 100% with Insurance_Guy

    The issue is whether there is a relationship between talc and cancer. Proving that their deaths were directly caused by the use of J & J’s product. This is not well documented (yet) so until the issue is an issue of actual fact, it will be up to judges to make findings of fact and juries, when they are called, will make awards. Folks will dispute climate change as being unconfirmed “science” but will gullibly accept that talc causes cancer without confirmed “science”. this did not yet get to the point that it is proven and that may be a shame if true but a tragedy for those who cannot find a link; they won’t be able to blame their death on anyone/anything then.

      How can these plaintiff’s present their documents/facts, if Judge Nelson Johnson of New Jersey won’t even allow the opportunity of said “facts” to be heard?… Not quite the legal balance of justice as I was taught….

      Stush, I agree that the science is spotty. Nonetheless, NJ is one of the only court systems denying the class action. Pharmaceutical is NJ’s largest and most prominent employer.
