We sent a clear message to executives on Wall Street today: If you plan to undermine the health and safety of women and families -- think again.
Today, we secured a $344 million judgment against the corporate giant Johnson & Johnson for their deceptive marketing practices that severely harmed women -- a groundbreaking and first-in-the-nation ruling.
The Hill: Johnson & Johnson ordered to pay $344M over surgical mesh claims
Our judgment today stems from Johnson & Johnson knowing about the potential risks and serious side effects of some of their products prior to launch.
Yet, despite this, they misled consumers about the possibility of serious and irreversible complications the products could cause -- including permanent pain and bodily dysfunction.
When giant corporations prioritize profits over people like this, California will hold them accountable. No matter who you are, attacks on our families won't be tolerated -- and we won't rest until justice is secured.
Your grassroots support is making a critical difference. Team, can you chip in $5 today to help meet our end of month fundraising goal?
