Kern County Superior Court Judge Lorna H. Brumfield denied a motion for new trial filed by Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon in Colleen Perry’s case. A $5.7 million jury verdict for the California woman, who was injured by the company’s pelvic mesh product, was reached in early March. The jury awarded $100,000 in past non-economic damages, $100,000 in future medical expenses, $500,000 in future non-economic damages, and $5 million in punitive damages to the Plaintiff, Coleen Perry, for damages as a result of a TVT Abbrevo mesh implant. The jury’s award was based on a finding of negligent design, negligent failure to warn, and negligent misrepresentation of the device’s safety and effectiveness.
