Dan Stolz Interviewed In NJBIZ's Intimate Conversations: Why The J&J Bankruptcy Case Is A Warning For Other Companies

October 10, 2023

Bankruptcy cases don’t often make headlines. Settlements are reached, companies pay fines, and everyone goes about their business. Other elements, including the massive toll these cases can take, are often overlooked or ignored completely.

LTL was to pay out billions to resolve the claims against it. However, Judge Michael Kaplan recently ruled in favor of the claimants, not Johnson & Johnson. This allows for more suits to be filed, and keeps the company on the hook for any more compensation claims.

Genova Burns’ Dan Stolz was a key member fighting for the claimants at Johnson & Johnson. Working along with Genova Burns lawyers Gregory Kinoian and Donald Clark, these three acted as the local counsel for the talc claimants involved in the case.
