Wall Street is trying to figure out whether the U.S. insurance industry will bear any costs from a record $4.69 billion judgement against Johnson & Johnson awarded to customers and their families who claimed that asbestos-contaminated talc caused ovarian cancer. Analysts have flagged talc litigation as a financial risk for insurers. On company earnings calls in recent days, they peppered executives with questions about where exposure might lie. Many of the policies were written decades ago, and some liability may have been offloaded to reinsurers, making it hard to tell who might be on the hook for payments. J&J has repeatedly denied that its talc products, including its baby powder, contain asbestos or cause cancer.
