Judge Kennelly Appoints Attorney Michelle Kranz to the Plaintiffs’ Executive Committee in the Testosterone Replacement Therapy MDL
Date:8/1/2014

Toledo, Ohio (PRWEB) August 01, 2014

The Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) issued an order consolidating claims that testosterone replacement therapy caused strokes, heart attacks, and other injuries in men who used it. The JPML designated Judge Matthew F. Kennelly as the transferee judge and ordered what could be thousands of cases transferred to the Chicago-based federal court.

As one of his first organizing acts, Judge Kennelly undertook the task of appointing committees of attorneys who will move the litigation forward on behalf of all claimants and attorneys nationwide. But, before designating the 34 attorneys who will lead the consolidated litigation, the Court interviewed each applicant in open court and each submitted detailed information about his or her level of experience, ability to commit the time and resources to this litigation, and ability to work with others in the group. Ms. Kranz listed a number of high-profile appointments to committees in similar litigations.

In choosing the 34 attorneys, Judge Kennelly noted that the group is larger than past multi-district litigation groups. But, he also observed this is not the typical MDL proceeding; there are six different defendants and multiple forms of the testosterone replacement therapy products.
