Claims Advocacy and Litigation Over Coverage for Talc Ovarian Cancer Claims
We are representing $75B multinational mining company Rio Tinto in insurance coverage litigation in San Francisco Superior Court regarding coverage for the Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder Ovarian Cancer Litigation (Talc Ovarian Cancer Claims). The Talc Ovarian Cancer Claims involve approximately 14,000 personal injury claims filed across the country alleging that talc exposure caused the plaintiffs’ ovarian cancer. This litigation recently resulted in a $4B verdict against J&J, as well as a number of other large verdicts. Our firm’s work involves not only the coverage litigation, but advice to the client on numerous other insurance issues raised by the claims.
Target Corporation v. Golden State, et al.
Successfully defended a favorable summary judgment ruling for both McKesson Corporation and its captive insurance company on appeal to the Second Appellate District. The lawsuit was filed against McKesson by Target seeking indemnity from McKesson and insurance coverage from McKesson’s captive insurance company for costs that Target incurred to defend and settle an underlying product liability case.
