Accutane Recusal Fight Headed to NJ Supreme Court
We, like others, have been following the ongoing saga of Hoffman-La Roche’s efforts to secure the recusal of Judge Carol Higbee from her role presiding over the centalized multicounty litigation involving Accutane. Last month, we noted that the Apellate Division had denied Hoffman-La Roche’s attempt to force Judge Higbee’s recusal.
Hoffman-La Roche, as reported by, among others, Law360 (registration required), continues to push this issue, and has now asked the New Jersey Supreme Court to review its request. A copy of Hoffman-La Roche’s brief is here.
It, of course, remains to be seen what the NJ Supreme Court will do with this, and we, along with many others, will be watching.
