The Supreme Court for New Jersey backs certain complaints in a product liability lawsuit brought against Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Cordis Corp.'s Cypher stent. Johnson subsidiary Cordis Corp. wasn't able to dodge all the complaints in a patient injury lawsuit after a New Jersey Supreme Court Judge upheld certain arguments against the company's Cypher coronary stents. Lead plaintiff Vonnie Cornett and a clutch of others from 16 states sued Johnson & Johnson and Cordis in 2008, filing 48 complaints for injuries allegedly caused by Cordis' Cypher sirolimus-eluting stent.
