TRENTON, N.J. (Legal Newsline) – A Johnson & Johnson subsidiary is asking a court to approve an arbitration award of more than $500,000 in a lawsuit against two Texas medical facilities over their alleged failure to pay invoices.

Ethicon US LLC filed a petition to confirm arbitration award in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey in a suit involving Texas General Hospital LP and Texas General Hospital GP LLC.

Ethicon states in its petition that it filed a demand for arbitration on June 1, 2018, with the American Arbitration Association over allegations Texas General Hospital failed to pay for goods and sought damages from the alleged breach. The petition states Texas General Hospital filed its response on Sept. 7, 2018.

The petition states the arbitrator came to a partial final award decision on Nov. 20, 2018, dismissing Ethicon's claim for unjust enrichment and Texas General Hospital's dispositive motion. The arbitrator awarded $588,526.96 to Ethicon, plus more than $9,000 for fees paid to the American Arbitration Association.

Ethicon is represented by Michael F. Buchanan of Patterson, Belknap, Webb & Tyler LLP in New York.
