Judge Sanctions Plaintiffs’ Lawyer in Talc Lawsuit

New York Supreme Court Justice Manuel Mendez sanctioned a plaintiffs’ lawyer for giving defendant deposition information to the media before the defendant had a chance to review it, Law.com reports.

Justice Mendez said the lawyer, from the Simmons Hanly Conroy firm, disclosed the deposition of Johnson & Johnson’s CEO before a designated timeline outlined in the protective order in which the company would have a chance to review it. The Justice said the move “was frivolous and done to harass the defendants.” There will be a hearing later this month to determine the value of the sanctions.
