Through the settlement, J&J agrees to institute corporate governance changes and pay up to $10 million in attorneys fees and $450,000 in costs, subject to the Courts approval. The Court will approve the settlement and appoint a special master to aid the Court in determining reasonable attorneys fees and costs. The Court denies the objectors motions to intervene and to dismiss. [Filed October 26, 2012]
