Date:3/27/2008

DENVER, March 27 /PRNewswire/ -- On March 25, 2008, The Honorable Dan A. Polster, federal judge presiding over the Gadolinium-Based Contrast Agents Product Liability Multi-District Litigation in the Northern District of Ohio, appointed several lawyers to serve on the Plaintiffs' Steering Committee. One of these lawyers is Peter Burg of Burg Simpson. The PSC reports directly to Judge Polster, and is responsible for conducting pre-trial proceedings on behalf of all plaintiffs who have cases in the MDL.

When asked to comment, Peter Burg said: "I am honored to receive this prestigious appointment and have the opportunity to serve as the Co-Chair of the Plaintiffs' Steering Committee and the Executive Committee in this important MDL proceeding. I take this responsibility seriously, and will work closely with the other lawyers on the PSC in managing and conducting pre-trial proceedings on behalf of the plaintiffs. My leadership role in this MDL proceeding is a testament to the reputation Burg Simpson has achieved in the mass torts arena as a result of our excellent work in previous MDL proceedings, specifically the Bextra-Celebrex, Zyprexa, Ortho Evra and Vioxx MDLs." A number of firm attorneys sit on Plaintiffs' Steering Committees in pharmaceutical litigation as well as State Liaison Committees, Discovery Committees and Science Committees in pharmaceutical Multi-District Litigation cases.
