In the ongoing legal battle involving Johnson & Johnson’s use
of the much-criticized
Texas Two-Step, J&J now plans to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
We previously reported
J&J’s loss in the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals after a January 2023 ruling dismissed their bankruptcy legal maneuver
to halt the cases of over 40,000 consumers who contracted cancer from
using their asbestos-contaminated products due to their corporation not
being in any genuine financial distress.
Rather than accept the Appeal Court’s ruling and allow the cases
to resume, J&J requested a re-hearing of the matter. Nevertheless,
in another legal blow to their strategy, the court unanimously rejected
their request on
March 22, 2023.
After the ruling, J&Js lawyers vowed to appeal the matter to the U.S.
Supreme Court, a move which will likely further delay the resumption of
the asbestos cancer victims’ cases.
