Not withholding interim compensation from patients who want more: Johnson and Johnson to Delhi HC

New Delhi: Johnson and Johnson on Thursday told the Delhi High Court that it was not withholding payment to those patients who underwent revision surgeries for alleged faulty hip implants made by the company and want more than the interim compensation of Rs 25 lakh. The submission by the company came in response to a query by Justice Vibhu Bakhru as to what was it doing in cases where patients want more than the Rs 25 lakh. "We are paying everyone," Johnson and Johnson told the court.
