    A group of women and lawyers are calling on the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate Johnson & Johnson's alleged destruction of documents related to pelvic mesh implants that some women say gave them injuries.

    U.S. District Court Judge Cheryl Eifert in West Virginia concluded that J&J "destroyed thousands of documents regarding development of its pelvic mesh implants, but said there was no proof that was done intentionally," according to the  Associated Press.

    But the Corporate Action Network isn't buying it.

    “We view Johnson & Johnson’s dismissal of the thousands of documents destroyed as a slap in the face to every woman suffering,” said Corporate Action Network spokeswoman Levana Layendecker. “Johnson & Johnson needs to be held accountable as part of a larger war on women that stretches from Congress to the corporate boardroom. These women don’t need evasive responses by Johnson & Johnson’s executives, they need help, now.” Read more about this story on PBJ.com.
