Lawyers Spent Millions On Talc Ads As J&J Pulls Baby Powder: Lawyers spent more this year on advertisements seeking clients for talc lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson than any other product, according to a report in Legal Newsline. Last week, Johnson &Johnson announced plans to pull talc-containing Baby Powder off the market in the U.S. and Canada. Since Johnson & Johnson announced the removal of the product on May 19, lawyers have filed more than 40 additional complaints with the court managing federal multidistrict litigation over ovarian cancer claims in New Jersey.
