A private conference was held recently in St. Louis among several personal injury attorney groups handling national talcum powder lawsuits. The conference served as a forum for talcum powder litigation leaders to strategize together on their work around the nation to represent women and the families of women who allege they developed ovarian cancer from talcum powder use. The Onder Law Firm provides the following commentary on the August 2015 meeting:
“The talcum powder lawsuit conference was aimed at strategizing and coordinating our efforts to pursue justice on behalf of women who believe they have been harmed by talcum powder. The attorneys in attendance did plenty of strategizing, sharing resources and experiences to determine our best course of action to bring talcum powder lawsuit defendants to justice.
“While we cannot report on the specific, confidential matters discussed at the conference, we can say that the group of attorneys in attendance is deserving of accolades. We applaud the efforts of each of the law firms working nationally on talcum powder lawsuits. Everyone is truly doing amazing and impressive work on an uphill battle toward justice. We are proud to find ourselves among the ranks of some of the most committed and successful pharmaceutical liability attorneys in the nation.”
Attendees of note included Beasley Allen of Alabama and R. Allen Smith of Mississippi. Each of the firms in attendance is representing plaintiffs in cases currently underway across numerous jurisdictions. The pending talcum powder lawsuits share common questions of fact, including allegations linking a higher rate of ovarian cancer to the use of talcum powder for feminine hygiene, as in a case currently pending in St. Louis.*
The St. Louis case has been filed on behalf of more than sixty women and family members of women who developed ovarian cancer allegedly linked to regular application of talcum powder to the perimeum, according to court documents. The cases allege that talcum powder producers, manufacturers, and marketers were aware of the risks associated with talcum powder yet intentionally deceived consumers over the course of decades, according to court documents. Defendants in the case include the international pharmaceutical conglomerate Johnson & Johnson as well as the manufacturing company Imerys Talc America, and the drug store chain Walgreens. The products in question are Johnson & Johnson’s Shower to Shower and Johnson’s Baby Powder.
