“Today justice is served,” said Mark Lanier, the women’s lawyer. “Twenty families now get compensated for a horrible, unnecessary disease. And J&J, the trigger for that disease, is held accountable.”
Mark Lanier, a lawyer for the plaintiffs, said the Supreme Court’s action “sends a clear message to the rich and powerful: You will be held to account when you cause grievous harm under our system of equal justice under law.”
“This was a victory not just for the amazing women and their families who we were privileged to represent, but a victory for justice,” Mark Lanier, the women’s lawyer, told The Post. “This result is exactly what separates America from the rest of the world.”
