Inside J&J’s secret plan to cap litigation payouts to cancer victims

Reuters: So the company that is stabbing Canadians with an experimental drug and faces absolutely no liability if anything goes wrong...that same company is trying to dodge settling what they owe to those victims they gave cancer to.

"Johnson & Johnson created a plan last year to limit the financial bleeding from billions of dollars in jury awards to plaintiffs who alleged the company’s Baby Powder and other talc products caused deadly cancers. The healthcare and consumer-goods giant assigned more than 30 staffers to “Project Plato.” In a memo on the project in July, a company lawyer warned the team: Tell no one, not even your spouse.

"“It is critical that any activities related to Project Plato, including the mere fact the project exists, be kept in strict confidence,” Chris Andrew, a J&J lawyer, wrote in an internal memo reviewed by Reuters."
