Johnson & Johnson ordered to pay $120 million to New York couple in cancer case

Johnson & Johnson has been ordered by a New York state judge to pay $120 million in damages to a Brooklyn woman and her husband, after she blamed her cancer on asbestos exposure from using the company's baby powder.
 
Justice Gerald Lebovits of the state supreme court in Manhattan reduced the payout from the $325 million a jury awarded Robert and Donna Olson in May 2019 following a 14-week trial.
 
Johnson & Johnson said it will appeal the verdict, citing significant legal and evidentiary errors at the trial.
