After a nine day trial in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Indiana, a nine-member jury returned a $35 million verdict in favor of a northwest Indiana couple, Barbara and Anton Kaiser, for the injuries Barbara incurred from a Johnson & Johnson product, the Prolift transvaginal mesh. The jurors found that Johnson & Johnson, and its sub-division Ethicon, negligently designed the Prolift and failed to adequately warn of the device’s risks. The jury awarded the Kaisers $10 million in compensation for their injuries, and $25 million in punitive damages as punishment to Johnson & Johnson for its willful and wanton disregard for patient safety. The case is Barbara Kaiser et al v. Ethicon, Inc. et al., Case Number 2:17-cv-00114, in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Indiana. Jeff Kuntz was Co-Lead Counsel with Tom Plouff and Ed Wallace. Andy Faes of Wagstaff and Cartmell helped second chair the case.
