The Consumer Justice Foundation, a for-profit corporation whose team of professional consumer advocates provide the public with information regarding the potential dangers of using certain prescription medications, hereby reports that the judge who is overseeing the multi-district Actos side effects lawsuit has recently issued a ruling that could provide more time for those who may be affected in a negative way as a result of using this medication.
Specifically, the Actos side effects lawsuit case at issue is officially known as In Re: Actos Products Liability Litigation, MDL 2299, U.S. District Court, Western District of Louisiana (Lafayette). The case is being overseen by Judge Rebecca Doherty. According to court documents, Judge Doherty issued a ruling on July 13, 2012 known as a scheduling order. This scheduling order stated that the first Actos side effects trial will be held in November of 2014.
According to the court documents associated with this multi-district litigation, plaintiffs involved in this Actos side effects lawsuit are alleging that they used Actos to help them treat the symptoms of diabetes in recent years and that as a result of using Actos they allegedly were diagnosed with bladder cancer. Plaintiffs involved in this litigation are seeking compensatory damages.
The fact that the scheduling order was issued and that it allows for two more years before the first Actos side effects trial begins means that those who may have used Actos and who have yet to be diagnosed with an alleged Actos side effect will still have time to become involved with this lawsuit if they feel the need to do so.
