A New Jersey judge warned of several “rogue websites” by lawyers seeking to take advantage of Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)’s agreement to pay at least $2.47 billion to settle thousands of lawsuits over its recalled hip implants.

Superior Court Judge Brian Martinotti heard a summary in Hackensack today of the settlement from lawyers who negotiated an accord designed to resolve about 8,000 U.S. suits against J&J’s DePuy unit. DePuy recalled 93,000 of its ASR hips worldwide in 2010 as the device’s failure rate began to climb.
