--An Illinois jury found Johnson & Johnson wasn't liable for the death of a woman from ovarian cancer, which her family blamed on her use of the company's talc-based powders, Reuters reported.

--The family of the late Elizabeth Driscoll sought up to $50 million in damages and claimed J&J knew its baby powder and Shower to Shower products were unsafe, according to Reuters.

--The verdict reflects the jury's "careful consideration of the science and facts presented," J&J said in a statement.
