Lawyers gave one big reason on Monday that lawsuits against 3M over its combat earplugs should halt given its subsidiary’s bankruptcy: just look at the actions of plaintiffs lawyers in the past 14 days.

Plaintiffs lawyers, they said, had continued to make filings, despite the automatic stay in place since 3M subsidiary Aearo Technologies filed for bankruptcy on July 26. Among them were two motions filed by Ashley Keller, of Chicago’s Keller Postman, and Adam Wolfson, of Los Angeles-based Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, that aimed to limit 3M’s actions in the bankruptcy and the earplug litigation going forward.
