J&J, based in New Brunswick, New Jersey, faces more than 12,000 lawsuits(JNJ:US) accusing its Ethicon unit of making improperly designed vaginal inserts, such as the slings, that damaged women’s organs and made sex painful. Most of the cases have been consolidated before a federal judge in West Virginia for pretrial information exchanges while other cases are being heard in state courts.
