In re:

LTL MANAGEMENT LLC,1

Debtor.
MOTION OF AYLSTOCK, WITKIN, KREIS & OVERHOLTZ, PLLC TO DISMISS BANKRUPTCY CASE AND JOINDER IN RELATED FILINGS 1 The last four digits of the Debtor’s taxpayer identification number are 6622. The Debtor’s address is 501 George Street, New Brunswick, New Jersey 08933.

Aylstock, Witkin, Kreis & Overholtz, PLLC (“AWKO”), on behalf of thousands of holders of talc personal injury claims, hereby moves, pursuant to section 1112(b) of the Bankruptcy Code, to dismiss the above-captioned bankruptcy case. AWKO also hereby joins and relies on the arguments and evidence set forth in the Motion of the Official Committee of Talc Claimants to Dismiss Debtor’s Chapter 11 Case [Docket No. 632] (the “TCC Motion”) and Arnold & Itkin LLP’s Motion to Dismiss [Docket No. 766] (the “A&I Motion”). As set forth in greater detail in AWKO’s prior filings,2 this bankruptcy case serves no legitimate reorganizational purpose. The Debtor3 is a newly-confected entity, created two days before the Petition Date as part of a series of corporate machinations intended to cleave off the personal injury liabilities of J&J and JJCI, saddle the Debtor with those liabilities, and then “ferry [those liabilities] into bankruptcy.”4 This corporate re-shuffling was a blatant actual intent fraudulent transfer through which J&J and JJCI sought to obtain certain powerful benefits of bankruptcy (e.g., the protection of the automatic stay) without subjecting themselves and their assets to the full scrutiny of the bankruptcy process. This Court should not allow J&J and JJCI – via the Debtor – to abuse the Bankruptcy Code to gain a litigation advantage against tens of thousands of suffering talc victims. 2 See generally Aylstock, Witkin, Kreis & Overholtz PLLC’s (I) Objection to Debtor’s Ex Parte Motion for an Emergency Hearing; (II) Preliminary Response to Debtor’s Emergency Motion to Enforce the Automatic Stay and (III) Joinder in Related Filings [Docket No. 103]; Opposition of Aylstock, Witkin, Kreis & Overholtz PLLC to Debtor’s Request for Preliminary Injunctive Relief [Docket No. 249]; Response of Aylstock, Witkin, Kreis & Overholtz, PLLC to Order to Show Cause Why Venue Should Not Be Transferred to Another District and Joinder in Certain Related Filings [Docket No. 346]; Opposition of Aylstock, Witkin, Kreis & Overholtz PLLC to Debtor’s Relief for Preliminary Injunctive Relief, Adv. Proc. No. 21-03032 [Adv. Docket No. 143]. 3 Capitalized terms used but not defined herein have the meaning ascribed to them in the TCC Motion. 4 In re DBMP LLC, 2021 WL 3552350, at *13 (Bankr. W.D.N.C. Aug. 11, 2021).

For the reasons set forth herein and in the TCC Motion and the A&I Motion, AWKO respectfully requests that the Court dismiss this case pursuant to section 1112(b) of the Bankruptcy Code. DATED: December 29, 2021 Respectfully submitted, OFFIT KURMAN, P.A. /s/ Paul J. Winterhalter Paul J.
