SCREENING PLAINTIFFS - Litigators told Law.com’s Amanda Bronstad this week that they predict more recalls of sunscreens that contain dangerous levels of benzene and, as a result, more class action litigation against companies like Johnson & Johnson and Energizer Holdings Inc. So far, all of the cases filed over these recalls focus on consumer fraud, unjust enrichment and breach-of-warranty claims, not personal injuries.
