DePuy Hit with $8.3 Million Judgement on ASR Hip

Posted by Todd Hendrickson in Court Opinions | Medical Products | Recent Litigation

Johnson & Johnson hit with $8.3 million dollar verdict in the first case to go to trial over the defective Depuy ASR hip implants, reports Bloomberg.

The verdict was for more than the $5.3 million in compensatory damages requested by plaintiff, but did not include any punitive damages. Apparently the issue of punitive damages was hotly debated by jurors. The jury deliberated for five days.
