Actos Lawyers at Bernstein Liebhard LLP Comment on California Judge’s Decision to Set Aside Verdict in Nation’s First Actos Bladder Cancer Trial
Date:5/3/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) May 03, 2013

The Actos lawyers at Bernstein Liebhard LLP note that a California Superior Court judge has set aside a $6.5 million verdict handed down last week in the nation’s first Actos bladder cancer trial. According to a May 3rd Reuters report, in granting Takeda Pharmaceuticals' request to nullify the verdict, Judge Kenneth Freeman of Los Angeles Superior Court asserted that the Plaintiff’s medical expert had failed to establish that Actos was the specific cause of Cooper's bladder cancer.* (Cooper v. Takeda Pharmaceuticals America Inc., CGC-12-518535, California Superior Court)

“We are obviously disappointed with this turn of events, but we are still heartened that the first jury to hear an Actos claim found for the plaintiff. We remain optimistic that future Actos bladder cancer lawsuits will yield victories for plaintiffs,” 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 long-term users of the medication who have been diagnosed with bladder cancer.

Actos Bladder Cancer Lawsuits
Court records indicate that Takeda has been named in more than 3,000 Actos bladder cancer lawsuits. Some 1,200 of those Actos lawsuits have been filed in a multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Western District of Louisiana. The first trial in that litigation is expected to begin next January. (In re: Actos Product Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2299) All of the Actos lawsuits allege Takeda knew that Actos could increase the risk of bladder cancer in patients taking the drug, but failed to provide adequate warnings about this increased risk.
