Philadelphia jury awards $50M in punitive damages against Johnson & Johnson in pelvic mesh case

The New Jersey Law Journal reports that a jury in Philadelphia has awarded more than $80 million, including $50 million in punitive damages, to a woman who claimed she was injured by a pelvic mesh device made by Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Ethicon. 

If this story sounds familiar, that's because a different Philadelphia returned a $120 million verdict about a month ago, in a case involving the same product.
