Jury refuses to blame Children's Motrin for child's blindness

Reuters reported today that a jury had refused to hold Johnson & Johnson, maker of Children's Motrin, responsible for an 11-year old's blindness.  The family had claimed that Johnson & Johnson should have warned them that Ibuprofen, the active ingredient in Children's Motrin, can cause an extremely rare, and sometimes fatal allergic reaction called Stevens-Johnson Syndrome.  The jury concluded that the family's lawyers did not prove a connection between the child's blindness and Ibuprofen.  We wonder if the jury was also "tainted" by the family's lawyer's demand for one billion dollars in damages.
