As Accusations of Dangerous Religion Fly, Phila.’s First Talc Trial Is Eliminated to Federal Court docket for Third Time

Johnson & Johnson

Earlier Thursday, Johnson & Johnson, which received billions of dollars in verdicts on its talc products, ruled the Kleiner v. Rite Aid case in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. The case had been heard in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas from August 2nd.
