$247 Judgment Against DePuy A Dallas jury issued a ridiculously large judgment for six plaintiffs in a metal-on-metal hip implant case. The judgment in the amount of $247 million is staggering and will certainly be appealed. Johnson & Johnson owns DePuy and continues to face thousands of these cases across the country. Cases of this size start with what is known as test cases that lay the groundwork for the potential settlement of the large class action years down the road.
