A New Jersey appeals court has reversed a $117 million talcum powder verdict after finding the trial judge should not have allowed two plaintiffs’ experts to testify at trial.

Wednesday’s ruling comes nine months after another New Jersey appeals court reversed a trial judge’s summary judgment ruling tossing two plaintiffs’ experts in a different talcum powder case. Both decisions cited a 2018 landmark ruling by the New Jersey Supreme Court establishing the standard of scientific evidence to be admitted at trial.
