As we have previously reported, plaintiffs have alleged that employees of Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon unit, manufacturers of the Gynecare Prolift implant, mishandled documents related to the device. Plaintiffs recently asked the Department of Justice to launch an investigation into Ethicon’s handling of thousands of documents related to the device.
The consumer advocacy group, Corporate Action Network, wrote Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate whether Johnson & Johnson, based in New Brunswick, N.J., and CEO Alex Gorsky, committed the crimes of obstructing justice and destroying records in a federal probe. The Corporate Action Network said it plans to bring injured patients to speak at Johnson & Johnson’s annual shareholder meeting in late April.
