Johnson & Johnson is facing some 13,000 similar lawsuits around the United States.
Johnson & Johnson says tests by regulators worldwide have shown that its talc is safe and asbestos-free.
"Yet another jury has rejected J&J's misleading claims that its talc was free of asbestos", Leavitt's lawyer, Moshe Maimon, said in a statement Wednesday, slamming the "decades of cover-up, deception and concealment by J&J".
J&J said that it was disappointed with the verdict and that it planned to appeal.
Johnson & Johnson said it would appeal this verdict, citing "serious procedural and evidentiary errors" in the course of the trial. It includes a section linking to multiple studies conducted over decades that showed no increased risk for ovarian cancer in women who used baby powder. "Thousands of independent tests by regulators and the world's leading labs prove our baby powder has never contained asbestos", the statement said.
Previous year 22 women were awarded $4.7 billion after they sued J&J, alleging they developed ovarian cancer because of the company's products.

Disney Reinstates James Gunn for Guardians of the Galaxy 3
The first two Guardians films, which follow a misfit bunch of space adventurers, have grossed over $1.6 billion globally. In the aftermath of Gunn's firing, Guardians of the Galaxy stars penned an open letter expressing their support for him.
Leavitt's trial originally included J&J's talc supplier, Imerys Talc America, a unit of Imerys SE, as a co-defendant. Johnson & Johnson is still appealing the verdict.
Johnson & Johnson also claims on its "Facts about Talc" website that every verdict that has gone through the appellate process has been overturned.
The shares of healthcare major Johnson and Johnson fell almost 2 percent on Thursday's premarket trading after the company was ordered to pay $29 million to a woman whose cancer was attributed to the asbestos contained in the company's talcum-powder products.
On Wednesday, a California jury concurred.
Last year, a Los Angeles jury awarded US$25.7 million to a woman who blamed her cancer on the powder. They have Mesothelioma is a bad form of cancer (as if any form of cancer isn't terrible) and Johnson & Johnson will have to do a much better job of convincing juries that their products don't cause cancer.
"I don't think they made a good case" that J&J's Baby Powder "contained a significant enough amount of asbestos contamination to cause the illness", she said.
