J&J To Pay Roughly $1 Billion To Resolve Hip Implant Lawsuits

According to a report by Reuters, on Tuesday, Johnson and Johnson agreed to pay about 1 billion-dollars to resolve the bulk of lawsuits claiming the company sold defective metal-on-metal hip implants that ultimately had to be removed.

The agreement, orginally reported by Bloomberg, resolves over 95 percent of the 6,000 cases in which surgeons extracted the company's Pinnacle implants because they left patients unable to walk and in pain.
