| CBS News – A jury has ordered medical company Johnson & Johnson to pay $8 billion in punitive damages in the case of a man who said he developed breasts after taking the company’s anti-psychotic drug Risperdal as a child.
The case is unrelated to a string of big-money lawsuits the company is facing over its signature baby powder.
In the Risperdal case, the Philadelphia jury found that Johnson & Johnson failed to warn 26-year-old Nicholas Murray of the drug’s side effects.
Murray claimed that taking the Risperdal as a child caused him to develop breasts, an incurable condition known as gynecomastia.
Thousands of others have filed lawsuits alleging the same.
