VERDICT

Trial
09/22/15 – 10/16/15

Summary

A New Jersey state court jury cleared Johnson & Johnson subsidiary McNeil Consumer Healthcare of all liability on Friday in the first of hundreds of lawsuits to go to trial alleging the company failed to adequately disclose the risks of liver damage from taking Extra Strength Tylenol.

The unanimous 10-member jury returned the verdict following a trial that began on Sept. 22. The panel rejected plaintiff Regina JacksonÂ’s claims that McNeil is responsible for her liver damage after she accidentally took Extra Strength Tylenol for longer than the recommended dosage period.
