    $76.6 Million Awarded to Boy Who Grew Female Breasts from Risperdal

    Arnold & Itkin obtained the largest single verdict in a Risperdal-Gynecomastia case—$76.6 million. We are honored to have helped our client recover this amount!

    A young boy who had developed female breasts as a result of taking Risperdal—a drug manufactured by Johnson & Johnson and Janssen Pharmaceuticals—was awarded a $76.6 million jury verdict. Represented by Attorneys Jason Itkin and Kyle Findley of Arnold & Itkin, with help from Santana McMurrey and Cory Itkin, the client was able to successfully hold Johnson & Johnson and Janssen Pharmaceuticals accountable for their failure to disclose the drug’s harmful side effects.

    Once the boy’s family sued Johnson & Johnson for his symptoms related to Risperdal—an anti-psychotic medication—Johnson & Johnson maintained that the boy remained on the drug after knowing about the side effects, that this drug was the only one that worked, and that the drug did not have any ties to gynecomastia in young males. Through cross-examination, evidence that became known as “Tab 4,” showed that there was scientific data evidencing a link between Risperdal and gynecomastia. Furthermore, it was evidenced that Johnson & Johnson kept this information secret from scientific published studies, the FDA, and consumers.

    At the end of the 11-day trial, the jury awarded Arnold & Itkin’s client $76.6 million after unanimously finding Johnson & Johnson and Janssen Pharmaceuticals to be guilty of failing to warn consumers against the dangerous side effects of the drug. This verdict is the largest single verdict in a Risperdal-Gynecomastia case.
