Talcum Powder Plaintiff Seeks to Remand Ovarian Cancer Case, Says Defendants Properly Joined

  • Motion

TRENTON, N.J. –– A plaintiff with talcum powder ovarian cancer claims pending in the national multidistrict litigation docket has asked the MDL Court to remand her case, noting that a trial court has already refused to dismiss the defendants in question on jurisdiction grounds.

In a Dec. 11 motion filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey, the plaintiff argued that Janssen and Johnson & Johnson are “not diverse from the properly joined Plaintiffs.”

“Nor can it be disputed at this stage that Defendants’ wrongful and fraudulent conduct, caused Plaintiffs Ovarian Cancer,” the motion said.
