National talcum powder attorneys provide the latest news on a talcum powder lawsuit they currently have pending in St. Louis.* According to the firm, the case is advancing quickly toward the date of its jury trial with important advancements:

“In the past week, several important developments have occurred. While they may sound mundane or difficult to decipher for the average reader, we can report that the case is still on track and moving forward. Other talcum powder lawsuits around the country have been dismissed early in their proceedings, but this St. Louis talcum powder lawsuit, filed on behalf of approximately fifty plaintiffs from around the United States, continues to hold water.

In the past week, court documents reflect the following developments in this talcum powder lawsuit pending in the City of St. Louis District Court: On October 20, an Affadavit of Service of Subpoena was filed for Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. A Motion for Admission of W. Mark Lanier Pro Hac Vice was filed electronically on the same day. On October 22, Martin J. Buckley appeared for Janssen Pharmaceuticals, according to the court record. On October 24, Buckley & Buckley appeared on behalf of Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and a Motion to Quash Deposition Subpoena Duces Tecum was also filed on behalf of Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

This talcum powder lawsuit is presided over by Judge Rex M. Burlison. This particular case represents more than sixty women or families of women who allege their diagnosis of ovarian cancer is linked to their routine use of talcum powder for feminine hygiene in the perineal region, according to court documents. The plaintiffs allege the women would not have used talcum powder in this manner had they been warned of the alleged risk, according to court documents.

Furthermore, this talcum powder lawsuit alleges that the defendants, including Johnson & Johnson, knew of the alleged link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer and engaged in marketing campaigns to intentionally deceive potential customers, according to court documents.

The court case cites numerous studies that have been conducted over the past four decades which conclude the regular use of talcum powder for female genital dusting can result in an increased risk of ovarian cancer of 33-41%, depending on the frequency of use, according to court documents.
