Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) knew that a metal hip-replacement implant was problematic in 2008, a year before the company halted production of the product and two years before recalling it, court documents show. The documents are part of a lawsuit whose opening arguments are due to start on Friday. Overall, J&J faces 10,000 suits over the implant, for which its estimated liability is over $1B.

    Mankind knew that a metal hip replacement was problematic every date before 1980.

     

    Now enterprising attorneys get to get rich. Name some names. I would like to know which state is getting their next Senator.
