High court won’t hear Mississippi lawsuit over talcum powder


WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court has turned away a request by Johnson & Johnson to halt a Mississippi lawsuit over its talcum powder products. The case the justices turned away Monday dates to 2014, when Mississippi sued the New Brunswick, New Jersey-based company. Mississippi argues Johnson & Johnson violated state law by failing to warn users of health risks of using its products, which Mississippi says increase the risk of ovarian cancer in women. Johnson & Johnson says the Food and Drug Administration had considered requiring a warning on talcum powder products and concluded the evidence did not justify requiring one.
