J&J May Face $1B in Hip Lawsuits: Analyst - TheStreet

J&J's DePuy Orthopaedics unit faces around 1,000 lawsuits claiming it continued to make metal-on-metal hips even after it knew the hips had faults, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal.

Production of the metal-on-metal hips was stopped in 2009, and any joints that remained available on the market were recalled by J&J last year .
