Johnson & Johnson settled a September 2019 lawsuit alleging that it unlawfully marketed its surgical mesh devices and hip replacement systems, West Virginia news outlet WDTV reports.

The lawsuit filed by West Virginia state prosecutors was settled for $3.9 million, helping Johnson & Johnson dodge lawsuits with similar allegations related to its hip products. 

Johnson & Johnson and two of its subsidiaries — Ethicon and Ethicon US — were accused of misrepresenting the effectiveness, properties, risks and safety history of their surgical mesh products in marketing and educational materials, which were given to patients and physicians. The companies denied the allegations.
