Johnson & Johnson Spin-off Bankruptcy Case: Amicus Briefs

Authored and filed amicus briefs 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 to cancer victims exposed to talc in J&J’s products. The professors filed these briefs in support of the Official Committee of Talc Claimants’ motion to dismiss LTL’s chapter 11 case, both before the Bankruptcy Court in the District of New Jersey, and the appeal from that decision that was heard directly by the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. In January 2023, the Third Circuit reversed the Bankruptcy Court’s decision and dismissed the LTL Chapter 11 case.
