J&J's Request To Toss $70M Risperdal Verdict Upheld

  • Risperdal Medical Record Review & Outsourcing Services

Johnson & Johnson's (J&J) request to toss the $70 million Risperdal verdict has been upheld by the Pennsylvania appeals court.

According to the 2013 lawsuit, Andrew Yount, a Tennessee resident, had taken Risperdal since he was a toddler, which led to breast development, a condition called gynecomastia. Upholding the 2016 verdict has sent the case back to the Philadelphia trial judge for punitive damages. J&J was hit last month with $8 billion in punitive damages in another Philadelphia Risperdal case.

J&J is facing several lawsuits over its talc and opioid, along with lawsuits over Risperdal. J&J has more than 13,000 lawsuits filed on it in terms of breast development cases in men, allegedly caused by the antipsychotic drug.

Two coordinated actions are filed for Risperdal cases: one in Los Angeles Superior Court (Risperdal and Invega Product Liability Cases, JCCP 4775, presided by Honorable William Highberger) and the other in Philadelphia (In Re: Risperdal Litigation, March 2010 Term, Case No. 100300296).
