Johnson & Johnson ordered to pay $1 billion settlement


A federal jury in Dallas has ordered Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiary DePuy Orthopaedics to pay more than $1 billion to a group of plaintiffs over artificial hip replacements. A lawyer for the six plaintiffs said they suffered "serious medical complications caused by defective" metal-on-metal Pinnacle implants.
