July 11, 2016
ST. LOUIS –– The Johnson & Johnson defendants have asked a Missouri court to stay an upcoming September trial date, as well as all the scheduled 2017 talc trials, until an appellate court has weighed in on the cases ending in $72 and $55 million verdicts.
In the June 27 motion filed in the Missouri Circuit Court for the City of St. Louis, the defendants maintained that there are “multiple key issues that lead to legal errors in the Fox and Ristesund cases and that these errors will warrant judgment in favor of Defendants or a new trial.”
