Eva Echeverria is suing the pharmaceutical giant to argue that her ovarian cancer is the result of using products they advertised and promoted. She is not alone in her arguments, but she is certainly the first to have her claim in a courtroom beyond St. Louis.
For anyone paying attention to the cases against Johnson & Johnson over the last several years, there really appeared to be a heavy dose of talc-related trials in St. Louis, Missouri. In fact, every case was being heard in Missouri. But after the Supreme Court decision in Bristol-Myers Squibb v. Superior Court of California, it is now deemed out of line for an injury case to be heard outside of the state where the injury was allegedly suffered. And for the first time, a new case against Johnson & Johnson has popped up in California.
