St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) October 14, 2014
In a decision handed down recently*, a talcum powder lawsuit that originated in the Circuit Court of St. Louis was returned to that court once again, according to court documents. The lawsuit, which was filed on June 23, 2014 in the Circuit Court for the City of St. Louis, was transferred to United States District Court, in the Eastern District of Missouri at the request of the defense, Johnson & Johnson. Lawyers handling talcum powder lawsuit claims at The Onder Law Firm provide up-to-date talcum powder lawsuit news and information at their website, the Talcum Powder Cancer Lawsuit Center.
The Missouri lawsuit was filed by 65 plaintiffs, all of whom claim they developed ovarian cancer after having used Johnson & Johnson talcum powder products, according to court documents. The particular products in question are Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower, according to court documents. The plaintiffs allege that J&J failed to warn consumers of the “carcinogenic properties” of talcum powder, and to have “procured and disseminated false, misleading, and biased information regarding the safety” of their talcum powder products, according to the order.
Johnson & Johnson removed the case to federal court, and on the basis of a lack of diversity between the parties, the case has been remanded to Circuit Court, according to an order issued by U.S. District Judge Jean C. Hamilton on September 24.
