Houston attorney, Mark Lanier, obtained a $1 Billion jury verdict today for six of his clients against Johnson & Johnson, the manufacturer of DePuy Pinnacle hip implants.  The Dallas federal court jury found that Johnson & Johnson’s hip implants were defectively designed and that the company failed to properly warn consumers of their dangers.  Details of the verdict and the underlying trial can be found >>here<<.  Lanier also happens to be the lead trial counsel in the Fun 5’s lawsuit pending against GTECH Corporation (IGT) pending in Austin, Texas.
