Johnson & Johnson Sending Talc Cases to Bankruptcy Court
As expected, Johnson & Johnson has unloaded its burgeoning talc-related liabilities on a new subsidiary that filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Oct. 14. The controversial move, which confirmed the fears of many personal injury attorneys, is an attempt by J&J to more easily resolve the thousands of current and future lawsuits claiming that its talc products have caused serious medical problems, including ovarian and mesothelioma cancers. Most of the claims contend that talc in the products was contaminated with toxic asbestos fibers. The filing, in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Western District of...

Courts Seeing More Secondary Asbestos Exposure Lawsuits
Secondary exposure to toxic asbestos has declined dramatically in recent decades, but known cases of malignant mesothelioma caused by that type of asbestos exposure have continued to climb. Increasing awareness of the rare cancer has led to the contrasting trends and an expected rise in personal injury lawsuits involving secondary asbestos exposure. “One of the reasons is that we are getting better at diagnosing the disease,” attorney Daniel Wasserberg, who specializes in asbestos litigation, told The Mesothelioma Center at asbestos.com. “Years ago, a woman with classic mesothelioma symptoms, but wi...

Shutting Down Old Oil Rigs Is Harder —and More Expensive—Than it Sounds
As workers continue to comb beaches for tar balls in California’s Orange County after an underwater pipeline ruptured on Oct. 2, another massive fossil fuel cleanup operation is just getting underway on a 55-year-old rig anchored 120 miles up the coast. It’s a taxpayer-funded, $60 million debacle that reveals just how difficult and costly it may be to shut down aging oil rigs in the Pacific Ocean and decarbonize the country’s energy supply. Anchored two miles off Santa Barbara, the rig in question, known as Platform Holly, was built by ARCO in 1966, sold to Mobil in 1993, then sold again to a small Colora...

But as the Biden Administration has doubled down on requiring COVID-19 vaccination—including proposing a rule that businesses with more than 100 employees mandate vaccination—for some Republicans, opposition to mandates is proving to be an essential credential for showcasing leaders’ conservative bonafides.
