- J&J Settles $5.9 M Risperdal Lawsuit
Johnson & Johnson and Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a division of J&J, have agreed to pay $5.9 million to settle a Risperdal lawsuit that alleged the companies of improperly marketing the medication, which is primarily used to treat atypical psychological disorders such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, as well as irritability associated with autism spectrum disorder in children and teens.
Court documents show the suit was filed in 2008 by the Montana State Attorney General, and accused the defendants of deceptive, illegal and unfair marketing practices of Risperdal. Additionally, the state also alleged that both Johnson & Johnson and Janssen had concealed evidence linking the drug to serious side effects.
While the case has been settled, the companies have not admitted to any wrongdoing.
Additional Risperdal lawsuits are being filed alleging the drug causes gynecomastia in males, an unusual side effect characterized by the growth of large breasts.
According to court documents, Risperdal is the subject of over 200 product liability claims pending in consolidated litigation in Philadelphia Pleas Court, PA.

A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
Sophia H is very helpful.
I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Sophia H is a pleasure to work with! Thanks for all you do.
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
I would have no hesitation at all recommending Phillips Law Group. In particular, Juan Roque has impressed me with his professionalism, his integrity and his heart for the community!
