Risperdal Lawsuits Mount, With Filing of New Gynecomastia Complaint in New York Federal Court, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports

New York, New York (PRWEB) August 02, 2014

Risperdal lawsuits ( that allege use of the antipsychotic medication caused men and boys to develop gynecomastia, or male breast growth, continue to mount in U.S. courts, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents dated July 8th, one such case has been filed in U.S. District Court, Northern District of New York, on behalf of a 21-year-old man who underwent multiple surgeries to remove excess breast tissue after he developed gynecomastia that was allegedly caused by Risperdal. The complaint further claims that the Plaintiff’s treatment with the medication for several years also caused him to begin lactating. The new Risperdal lawsuit seeks compensation for severe, painful, disabling and permanent injuries, as well as emotional problems allegedly endured by the Plaintiff. (Case 1:14-cv-00820-GTS-RFT)

“Our Firm is representing a number of clients whose experience with this medication echo the allegations put forth in this latest Risperdal lawsuit filing,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free legal consultations to men and boys who allegedly developed gynecomastia due to their use of Risperdal.

Risperdal Gynecomastia Litigation
Court documents indicate that hundreds of plaintiffs are currently pursuing Risperdal lawsuits for gynecomastia allegedly caused by the medication. The majority of these claims are pending in a mass tort litigation now underway in Pennsylvania’s Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas. Among other things, the complaints accuse Johnson & Johnson and Janssen of concealing the association between Risperdal and male breast growth, and of improperly marketing the drug for off-label use in children. (In Re: Risperdal Litigation, Case Number 100300296).

On November 4th, the U.S. Department of Justice announced that Johnson & Johnson and Janssen had agreed to pay $2.5 million to resolve criminal and civil charges stemming from their marketing of Risperdal and other drugs. Among other things, federal prosecutors had alleged that the companies marketed Risperdal for pediatric uses long before it was approved for such indications in 2006. According to court documents filed in the case, the Justice Department had also charged that the company concealed side effects associated with the medication, including an association between Risperdal and male breast growth. (U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Pennsylvania, 04-cv-1529)
