Second Jury Finds Janssen Failed To Warn Of Risperdal Risks

This year, two juries in Philadelphia have found that Johnson & Johnson division, Janssen, failed to warn about the risk of male breast growth associated with the use of the drug, Risperdal.  In February, a jury rendered a $2.5 million verdict for a young male who had developed size 44DD breasts after using Risperdal for behavioral issues stemming from autism.  In March, in the second trial on this issue, a jury decided that the manufacturer failed to properly warn of the risk of gynecomastia but ultimately ruled that Risperdal did not cause that plaintiff's breast growth.
