Consumer health products giant Johnson & Johnson has asked the South Carolina’s highest court to reverse a lower court’s decision that consolidated for trial two mesothelioma cases where the plaintiffs are arguing they developed the disease as a result of exposure to the company’s iconic baby powder product.

Attorneys for the company filed a brief to the state’s Supreme Court on Monday asking that the cases Dupree v. Johnson & Johnson and Devey v. Johnson & Johnson be separated for trial after a circuit court determined the two cases shared sufficient facts for a single jury to preside over the trial. The Supreme Court granted cert in the case earlier this year.
