A Texas federal judge has halved a $1 billion #punitivedamages award to plaintiffs in the #DePuyPinnacle #hipimplant lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiary DePuy Orthopaedics.

U.S. District Judge Ed Kinkeade reduced the more than $1 billion in punitive damages the jury awarded in the case to $543 million in light of Supreme Court precedent finding constitutional limits to punitive damage awards.
