Chaffin Luhana Alerts Actos Patients to Updated MDL Trial Dates
Date:4/9/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) April 09, 2013

Chaffin Luhana LLP, a national plaintiffs-only law firm, today reminded plaintiffs and patients who have taken Actos that the first bellwether trials in the Actos MDL have been moved up. Judge Rebecca F. Doherty promised last year that she would move the litigation along as quickly as possible, and on February 19, 2013, she ordered that the first trial to begin on January 27, 2014, with the second scheduled for April 14, 2014 (Case 6:13-cv-00345-RFD-PJH, U.S. District Court, Western District of Louisiana, Scheduling Order: Pilot Bellwether Program (First Trial)).

“This reflects a new accelerated schedule for federal Actos cases, and should help plaintiffs to see their lawsuits resolved in a more timely manner,” said Eric Chaffin, co-founder of the firm. “Many of the plaintiffs involved in these lawsuits are elderly, and can’t afford to wait around for years to discover the outcome of their claims.”

Back in June 2012, Judge Doherty had scheduled the first bellwether trials to begin in November 2014, but in the recent court order she changed those dates. The updated program establishes a “streamlined trial preparation schedule for a minimum of two Pilot Bellwether trials,” and is imposed “so as to serve the very important goal of moving these proceedings toward completion of this court’s responsibilities in a reasonable time.”

The first Actos lawsuit has already gone to trial in Los Angeles, California, with plaintiff Jack Cooper alleging that manufacturer Takeda failed to warn about the serious risk of bladder cancer associated with long-term Actos use (Feeley & Cronin, “Takeda Faces First Trial Over Actos Diabetes Drug in L.A.,” Bloomberg, 2/18/2013). Over 3,000 other plaintiffs have made similar claims against the company, with all federal cases consolidated into the Western District of Louisiana on December 29, 2011 (MDL No. 2299).
