Arkansas court boots $1.2B J&J verdict on technical grounds

In defending the largest state-level decision ever won against Johnson & Johnson for its Risperdal marketing, the state of Arkansas said the New-Jersey based company didn't properly communicate the antipsychotic's risks and marketed it for off-label use. In its appeal, J&J said it didn't commit fraud or harm the state's Medicaid program. But Arkansas' Supreme Court had something entirely different to say when it overturned the $1.2 billion judgment Thursday.
