PA Judge Upholds $10M Children's Motrin Verdict

The Legal Intelligencer reports that Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas Judge Nitza Alejandro has denied Johnson & Johnson's McNeil-PPC's post-trial motions in a case involving over the counter Children's Motrin.  In the case, a jury awarded $10 million to a young girl who suffered Stevens-Johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis after taking Children's Motrin.   The full story is behind a free registration wall.

Thanks to Lisa Smith-Butler for the alert.
