Johnson & Johnson Spin-off Bankruptcy Case: Amicus Brief
Authored and filed an amicus brief on behalf of a group of well-renowned bankruptcy law professors concerning debtor LTL Management LLC ("LTL"), an entity created by Johnson & Johnson to hold its talc liabilities. LTL filed for Chapter 11 protection in October 2021. The professors filed this brief in support of the Official Committee of Talc Claimants’ motion to dismiss LTL’s chapter 11 case. The Talc Claimants’ Committee represents the individuals who have sued Johnson & Johnson alleging that its talc products caused them to develop cancer. Herrick's amicus brief attracted significant media coverage, including features in Law360, Law.com, Reuters, Reorg, American Bankruptcy Institute, New Jersey Law Journal, and Bloomberg Law.
