Bertila Boyd-Bostic, who passed away at the young age of 30, had her day in court posthumously at the Darlington County Court of Common Pleas when the lawyer representing her family told a jury that Johnson & Johnson knew about the presence of asbestos in its products for over 40 years. Attorney Christopher Swett stated that the plaintiff used talc powder for the better part of her life, and that Johnson & Johnson’s choices were why the case transpired.
Johnson & Johnson Attorneys Deny All Claims
In addition to Johnson & Johnson, Rite Aid, the national retail store was also named as the other defendant in the suit.

Another attorney representing the company also pointed out that millions of people had used their talc products without developing any medical conditions, and that this was proof their talc doesn’t contain asbestos fibers.
