A New Jersey federal judge has ruled plaintiffs can pursue a class action suit alleging that Johnson & Johnson and Wal-Mart baby bath products are unfit for sale because they contain a banned chemical that could cause cancer. The judge denied the companies' motions to dismiss for failure to state a claim, saying the plaintiffs had made a good enough case to seek economic damages on theories that the companies committed deceptive trade practices and breached an implied warranty.
