Ingham v. J&J: A Supreme Court Petition Spotlights Due-Process Concerns in America’s Mass Tort Environment

Thu, Mar 11, 2021 · 3:30 PM · Eastern Time (US & Canada)
About This Webinar

On March 2, Johnson & Johnson petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to review a Missouri appeals court decision that upheld one of the largest product liability verdicts in American history and awarded $2.1 billion in compensatory and punitive damages to 22 plaintiffs.

The case shines a light on critical legal issues that routinely arise in mass-tort litigation: claims joinder, punitive damages, and personal jurisdiction. Above all, it raises concerns about defendants’ due-process rights and their ability to receive a fair trial. Join our panel for a discussion of the Ingham petition and how it echoes businesses’ broader civil-justice and due-process concerns.
