A woman with ovarian cancer is suing Johnson and Johnson, alleging the company knew its talcum powder was a suspected carcinogen but failed to warn consumers.
Johnson and Johnson argues the science is not there to prove a link between its product and cancer.
A pool of 50 jurors picked last week will be whittled today down to 12 plus alternates.
The prospective jurors faced questions about whether they are biased against the flood of lawyer’s ads here about talcum powder. Some jurors were asked about cancer in their own families and whether they could set aside their emotions as hear the evidence fairly.
Opening arguments expected Tuesday.
