U.S. Supreme Court Ruling Threatens Massive Talc Litigation Against J&J

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); Johnson & Johnson is seizing upon a U.S. Supreme Court ruling from Monday limiting where injury lawsuits can be filed to fight off claims it failed to warn women that talcum powder could cause ovarian cancer. New Jersey-based J&J has been battling a series of lawsuits over its talc-based products, including Johnson’s Baby Powder, brought by around 5,950 women and their families. The company denies any link between talc and cancer. A fifth of the plaintiffs have cases pending in state court in St. Louis, where juries in four trials have hit J&J and a talc supplier with $307 million in verdicts. Those four cases and most of the others on the St. Louis docket involve out-of-state plaintiffs suing an out-of-state company. On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled 8-1 in a case involving Bristol-Myers Squibb Co that state courts cannot hear claims against companies that are not based in the state when the alleged injuries did not occur there. The ruling immediately led a St. Louis judge at J&J’s urging to declare a mistrial in the latest talc case, in which two of the three women at issue were from out of state. It also could imperil prior verdicts and cases that have yet to go to trial. “We believe the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the Bristol-Myers Squibb matter requires reversal of the talc cases that are currently under appeal in St. Louis,” J&J said in a statement. The question of where such lawsuits can be filed has been the subject of fierce debate. The business community has argued plaintiffs should not be allowed to shop around for the most favorable court to bring lawsuits, while injured parties claim corporations are trying to deny them access to justice. Along with talc cases, large-scale litigation alleging injuries from Bayer AG’s Essure birth control device in Missouri and California and GlaxoSmithKline’s antidepressant Paxil in California and Illinois are examples of other cases where defendants could utilize the Supreme Court decision. Although he declared a mistrial on Monday, St. Louis Circuit Judge Rex Burlison left the door open for the plaintiffs to argue they still have jurisdiction. Plaintiffs lawyer Ted Meadows said he would argue the St. Louis court still had jurisdiction based on a Missouri-based bottler J&J used to package its talc products, which he said would create a sufficient connection to the state. “It’s very disappointing to mistry a case because the Supreme Court changed the rules on us,” said Meadows. The lawsuit decided by the high court on Monday involved claims against Bristol-Myers and California-based drug distributor McKesson Corp by 86 California residents and 575 non-Californians over the blood thinner Plavix. Beyond Monday’s mistrial, the Supreme Court’s ruling could bolster a pending appeal by J&J of a $72 million verdict in favor of the family of Alabama resident Jacqueline Fox, who died in 2015. A Missouri appeals court had said in May it would wait until the Supreme Court issued its decision to decide the appeal. J&J has won only one of the five trials so far in Missouri. It previously sought to move talc cases out of St. Louis, but the Missouri Supreme Court in January denied its bid. The company has also cast the St. Louis court as overly plaintiff-friendly and has allowed evidence linking talc to cancer that was rejected by a New Jersey state court judge overseeing over 200 talc cases. The plaintiffs are appealing. The talc verdicts against J&J led the business-friendly American Tort Reform Association last year to declare the St. Louis state court the nation’s top “Judicial Hellhole.” Now J&J could try to use the Supreme Court ruling to dismiss many of the cases it faces in Missouri, according to legal experts. Corporations facing a large volume of cases in venues chosen by plaintiffs will likely cite the Supreme Court to try to dismiss those claims, said Rusty Perdew, a defense lawyer at the law firm Locke Lord. “You have a bunch of defendants who can go back and say, ‘Judge, you got that wrong and you’re going to have to dismiss claims by all those plaintiffs,’” he said. (This story was corrected to show that Perdew was speaking about corporations in general, not J&J, in next-to-last paragraph.)   (Reporting by Nate Raymond in Boston; Editing by Tom Brown and Bill Trott) -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Supreme Court ruling in drug case could have big implications for product liability

Bristol-Myers Squibb prevailed in its effort to get the Supreme Court to limit where patients can sue to seek compensation for harm caused by drugs.Justices Monday ruled, 8-1, for the drug company in a case that pitted BMS against the state of California and that could have broad implications for where manufacturers can be sued.The case centered around whether plaintiffs residing outside of California who claim they were harmed by BMS' blood thinner Plavix could join in a lawsuit brought by California residents against the New York-based company in California. The out-of-state residents didn't buy the drug or take it in California, and the product wasn't manufactured in the state."The mere fact that other plaintiffs were prescribed, obtained, and ingested Plavix in California — and allegedly sustained the same injuries as did the non-residents — does not allow the State to assert specific jurisdiction over the nonresidents' claims," wrote Justice Samuel Alito in the court's opinion.BMS and the government said California’s Supreme Court erred when it agreed that the out-of-state plaintiffs had standing in the case. The company argued failure to overturn the ruling would create more unpredictable conditions for corporations.A BMS win could limit patients' ability to “forum shop” cases against drugmakers. California is thought to be a particularly friendly state for injured plaintiffs, and a court victory for BMS could discourage patients from seeking relief there to boost their odds of a victory.

Bill Maher Jokes He's A 'House N****r' On 'Real Time'

Comedian Bill Maher dropped a racial slur in a joke Friday on “Real Time,” and people erupted on social media. Bill Maher just said the n word, @BenSasse didn't look horrified, and the audience applauded. pic.twitter.com/kFAs1S3dyM— Yashar Ali (@yashar) June 3, 2017 While discussing the state of Nebraska, his guest, Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), told Maher, “We’d love to have you work in the fields with us.” Apparently confused by the invitation, Maher joked “Work in the fields? Senator, I’m a house n****r!” Sasse looked uncomfortable, and the audience reacted with a mix of claps and groans. Then Maher, a critic of political correctness, followed up his remark by pointing out the sarcasm. “No, it’s a joke,” he said. The “Real Time” audience seemed to quickly forgive the host with a round of applause. Waving off the reaction with his hand, Maher replied, “Thank you.” People on Twitter, however, weren’t so forgiving.  But really, @BillMaher has got to go. There are no explanations that make this acceptable. pic.twitter.com/K5XlEjekQ9— deray mckesson (@deray) June 3, 2017 . @billmaher is a racist and bigot. @HBO must fire him this is not acceptable https://t.co/nlmFcDoWAk— Ahmed Bedier (@bedier) June 3, 2017 Bill Maher must be fired immediately for his racism and belittling the struggle of millions of black Americans— Jack Posobiec (@JackPosobiec) June 3, 2017 His fans reminded Maher that the word is completely off-limits to him and any person who isn’t black ― even if the comedian rejects PC policing. Some are comparing Maher’s joke with Kathy Griffin’s shocking photo shoot of her holding a likeness of Trump’s bloody severed head, which outraged conservatives and liberals alike. I'm a huge Bill Maher fan, but he just said (as a joke in his mind), "I'm a house nigga". Off limits, Bill. Not cool at all!— Jacquelyn Carter (@jcarter1263) June 3, 2017 @billmaher jokes have limits. high level of carelessness & indifference is destructive. Notice how Kathy Griffin self-destroyed!— M.M (@Mac4RFW) June 3, 2017 Me When bill maher just casually drops the n-word #Realtime #Billmaher pic.twitter.com/VUbKu2OKL0— Ryan Sanders (@TheKingleonidus) June 3, 2017 They just clapped like Bill Maher didn't say anything offensive pic.twitter.com/AIWqbBnhnj— ERV (@ervcas) June 3, 2017 One of Bill Maher's black acquaintances, please smack him? Bill, you don't get a pass. #billmaher #RealTime— Ron W. (@Badbluebro) June 3, 2017 Others are recalling how Maher has previously faced accusations of Islamophobia and was criticized for “normalizing” alt-right troll Milo Yiannopoulos when interviewing him on his show in February. People shocked at Bill Maher being racist-y, check w your Arab & Muslim friends. Been doing this for a LONG time, but he got hall passes.— Wajahat Ali (@WajahatAli) June 3, 2017 For folks finally denouncing @billmaher now: you're saying while transphobia & Islamophobia are ok, anti-Blackeness is where you draw a line— Sophie Ellman-Golan (@EgSophie) June 3, 2017 Remember when Bill Maher had Milo on? & Milo disrespected the 2 black guests, @larrywilmore and @MalcolmNance. Remember how quiet Bill was? — Soul & Substance (@SoulNSubstance) June 3, 2017 Sasse later revealed on Twitter that he wished he’d held Maher to account over the comment at the time, and admitted that “cringing last night wasn’t good enough.” Am walking off a redeye from LAX.3 reflections on @billmaher1. I’m a 1st Amendment absolutist. Comedians get latitude to cross hard lines.— Ben Sasse (@BenSasse) June 3, 2017 2. But free speech comes with a responsibility to speak up when folks use that word. Me just cringing last night wasn’t good enough.(2of4?) https://t.co/e4Bw8s8tV2— Ben Sasse (@BenSasse) June 3, 2017 3. Here’s what I wish I’d been quick enough to say in the moment: “Hold up, why would you think it’s OK to use that word?...(3of4?) https://t.co/mQL6wMEd7W— Ben Sasse (@BenSasse) June 3, 2017 (4of4)"...The history of the n-word is an attack on universal human dignity. It’s therefore an attack on the American Creed. Don't use it.” https://t.co/kEZm5vPFHK— Ben Sasse (@BenSasse) June 3, 2017 Maher hasn’t responded to the outrage yet, and, if he does, it probably won’t be an apology. The comedian, whose career hinges off his no-holds-barred sarcasm, believes that PC culture has become a dangerous vehicle in today’s politics and has warned Democrats to “ease up on the identity politics.” He’s even blamed PC culture for President Donald Trump’s win. But if people are wondering if it’s OK for Maher to casually drop the slur as a joke, we’ll let the Twitter outrage answer that question. Just watched the Bill Maher clip. pic.twitter.com/wDcENLICKA— Marisa (@mar_to_go) June 3, 2017 This article has been updated to include Sasse’s reaction to Maher’s comment and background on the comedian’s previous controversies. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Trump Gave Pope Francis A Copy Of MLK Jr. Writings And The Irony Was Almost Too Much

President Donald Trump met with Pope Francis for the first time on Wednesday, and, as customary for visits between dignitaries, the two men exchanged gifts. In a not-so-subtle nod to Trump’s shaky track record on environmental issues, Francis gave the U.S. president a copy of his 2015 encyclical on the environment, “Laudato Si.” As his offering, Trump saw fit to present the pontiff with a first-edition set of writings by Martin Luther King Jr. In some ways, the gesture was fitting. Francis spoke about King’s civil rights legacy during his address to Congress in 2015, and he frequently preaches on topics like nonviolence and the perils of capitalism, which were also close to King’s heart. But Trump’s gift was filled with irony. The White House claimed the gift “honors Dr. King’s hope, vision, and inspiration for generations to come.” Whether Trump, himself, honors King’s message is a question many have pondered. For one, Trump has had a troubling way of talking about black people over the years. “I have a great relationship with the blacks,” he said in April 2011. “I’ve always had a great relationship with the blacks.” In his years as a casino mogul, Trump allegedly disparaged his black employees as “lazy” in vividly bigoted terms, according to a 1991 book by John O’Donnell, a former president of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino. “I think the guy is lazy,” Trump said of a black employee, according to O’Donnell. “And it’s probably not his fault because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that. It’s not anything they can control.” Trump was also a leading proponent of “birtherism,” the racist conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States and was thus an illegitimate president. Trump claimed in 2011 to have sent people to Hawaii to investigate whether Obama was really born there. He insisted at the time that the researchers “cannot believe what they are finding.” Two months before the election, Trump finally acknowledged that Obama was indeed born in the United States. After his presidential win, Trump also consistently sidestepped opportunities to renounce white nationalist and former KKK leader David Duke, who told his radio audience that voting for any candidate other than Trump would be “treason to your heritage.” When asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper if he would condemn Duke and say he didn’t want a vote from him or any other white supremacists, Trump claimed that he didn’t know anything about white supremacists or about Duke. When Tapper pressed him twice more, Trump said he couldn’t condemn a group he hadn’t yet researched. The president has also surrounded himself with a number of advisors and cabinet picks who have a history of prejudice. He replaced former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, the first African-American woman to hold the position, with Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), a conservative, white, Republican senator from Alabama with a history of racially insensitive comments. To kick off Black History Month in February, Trump hosted a “conversation” at the White House and managed to make part of the discussion mostly about himself. In his remarks, the president also seemed a little shaky on his history when he referred to Frederick Douglass ― a man who escaped slavery to become an acclaimed author, abolitionist and civil rights activist ― as “an example of somebody who has done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I notice.” Whether Trump fully grasps the struggles and achievements of black Americans like King enough to bestow his writings on the pope is a question many Twitter users were pondering on Wednesday: Now, we all know that Trump ain't read or internalized a single thought of MLK. https://t.co/KXRZXWWB3n— deray mckesson (@deray) May 24, 2017 Trump giving MLK's books to the Pope when his policies will killl the folks MLK tried to help & Trump's DHS choice would've arrested him. pic.twitter.com/9ZWCmXnHKs— April (@ReignOfApril) May 24, 2017 Trump gives MLK writings to Pope. I doubt Trump read them? 3 evils of society, militarism, capitalism and racism.... https://t.co/SC1Oa2zlii— Dr. Wilmer Leon (@DrWLeon) May 24, 2017 I so misread this at first. I thought it said the Pope gave Trump, MLK books. Because no way would it make sense the other way. https://t.co/2sQTZY43zb— Adam (@MyNinjaTurtle) May 24, 2017 @robinthede Trump giving the Pope MLK writings-I didn't know whether to laugh my ass off or throw up in my mouth.— Joseph Powell (@jobypoet) May 24, 2017 @CBSThisMorning #TrumpGave the Pope bound writings/sayings of MLK!But 'HBCU's are racist to Whites' & to protestors'Get em outta here'.— Freedom'sComing (@jjconceptsinc) May 24, 2017 So Trump allegedly gave Pope Francis a 1st edition copy of the writings of Rev. Dr. MLK, Jr. Hope he kept a copy for himself. And reads it.— A. Adar Ayira (@AdarAyiraViews) May 24, 2017 Trump gave the Pope thise MLK books because he didnt want them.— Facts make sense (@DJYABOYEARL) May 24, 2017 Trump gave the Pope a copy of Why We Can't Wait after his AG proposed effectively bringing back Jim Crow in our justice system. Read MLK.(4) pic.twitter.com/jFF5IY808R— Joshua DuBois (@joshuadubois) May 24, 2017 We also know for damn sure that Trump never read any of the books by MLK that Trump presented to the Pope. There aren't any pictures. pic.twitter.com/GLV3JtQ1XC— April (@ReignOfApril) May 24, 2017 Are we sure Trump gave Pope Francis an actual book of MLK's and not just a Chipotle bag with the "I have a dream" quote on it— Ira Madison III (@ira) May 24, 2017 -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
