NEW ORLEANS — The State of Louisiana will have to pay more than $150,000 to an attorney representing a man who sued after he was denied a marriage license because he doesn't have a birth certificate, according to a federal judge's recent order.
&&&A federal jury in New Orleans has cleared Johnson & Johnson and Bayer AG in the second of at least 18,600 suits filed against the pharmaceutical giants stemming from the manufacturing of the blood-thinning drug Xarelto.
Louisiana has the highest cost per workers’ compensation claim and the lowest average benefit payment per claim, according to a recent 18-state report by the Workers Compensation Research Institute (WCRI).
After emerging victorious in the first of more than 18,000 suits filed against them, Xarelto maker Johnson & Johnson and Bayer Pharmaceuticals are vowing to remain as vigilant as ever in defending their reputations.
The companies defending a lawsuit filed against them for safety concerns over blood-thinning drug Xarelto say their first win in a string of bellwether court cases bolsters their claims the drug is safe and contains proper patient warnings.
NEW ORLEANS – A local attorney and legal watchdog organization both expect to see class-action lawsuits filed in the state over allegations that Johnson & Johnson's Baby Powder and Shower to Shower products cause ovarian cancer.
