Actos Lawsuit – Status Conference Convened in Federal Actos Bladder Cancer Multidistrict Litigation, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:7/27/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) July 27, 2013

Actos lawsuit claims continue to move forward in the U.S. District Court, Western District of Louisiana, where hundreds of Actos bladder cancer claims have been consolidated for pretrial proceedings, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents, a Status Conference was convened on July 25th, 2013, at which time discovery and bellwether trial updates were among the issues discussed. The Court also scheduled the litigation’s next Status Conference for August 22, 2013. (In re: Actos Product Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2299)

“Our Firm has heard from numerous Actos users concerned that their long-term use of Actos caused their bladder cancer. We are pleased to see this litigation moving forward, and look forward to the commencement of bellwether trials early next year,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free Actos lawsuit evaluations to patients who developed bladder cancer after using the medication for an extended period of time.

Actos Lawsuits
Actos is approved to lower blood sugar in patients with type 2 diabetes. In June 2011, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) warned that use of Actos for more than one year had been associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer.* That same month, regulators in several European countries pulled Actos from the market because of its association with bladder cancer. **

Since then, more than 2,400 Actos bladder cancer claims have been filed in the multidistrict litigation underway in Louisiana, all of which allege long-term use of Actos may cause or worsen bladder cancer. Plaintiffs further allege that Takeda Pharmaceuticals failed to provide adequate warnings to doctors and patients regarding the drug’s association with an increased risk of bladder cancer. The first trial in the federal Actos litigation is scheduled to begin on January 27, 2014.

While trials have yet to start in the federal Actos litigation, one has already concluded in California Superior Court. While the jury hearing the Actos lawsuit awarded $6.5 million to a plaintiff who was diagnosed with bladder cancer after taking the drug for four years, the judge overseeing the case granted Takeda Pharmaceuticals’ request to set aside the verdict. (Cooper v. Takeda Pharmaceuticals America Inc., CGC-12-518535, California Superior Court)

Actos users treated with the medication for an extended period of time may be entitled to compensation if they were diagnosed with bladder cancer.
