Reuters reported the federal jury in Dallas ordered Johnson & Johnson and its DePuy Orthopaedics unit to pay $247 million to six patients who said they were injured by defective Pinnacle hip implants.  Six New York residents implanted with the devices said they experienced tissue death, bone erosion and other injuries they blamed on design flaws.  The jury found that the metal-on-metal hip implants were defectively designed and that the companies failed to warn consumers about the risks.
