WASHINGTON, D.C. –– The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation has reassigned the Talcum Powder Products Liability Litigation MDL docket to Hon. Michael A. Shipp in the wake of Hon. Freda L. Wolfson’s retirement from the bench.

The JPML issued the order reassigning litigation to Hon. Shipp of the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey on Jan. 31.
