San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 10, 2014
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and now, can actively provide an expert opinion in view of the recent news on Nuva Ring lawsuits.
As Bloomberg published on February 8, Merck will pay $100 million to resolve as many as 3,800 lawsuits alleging blood clots from NuvaRing. NuvaRing is a popular internal birth control device, a vaginal ring placed near the cervix that was approved by the FDA in 2001. According to a US Judge, the settlement may resolve thousands of lawsuits in federal and state courts as long as enough women agree to participate in the accord (MDL 1964, U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Missouri and BER-L-3081-09, Superior Court of New Jersey).
According to a Court Order filed on January 9, a US District Judge put on hold the cases in the NuvaRing Multidistrict Litigation. As the Order states “adversarial litigation in these cases, including all discovery, motions, hearings on motions, and rulings related to any of these cases, shall be held in abeyance until May 31, 2014.”
Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com updated the website and, now, can actively provide an expert opinion including how to get in contact with legal counsel easily and inexpensively in cases of severe complications, allegedly from NuvaRing. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations at AttorneyOne.com, adds that the relevant information illustrates that people continue to file NuvaRing lawsuits. "For that reason," he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
Court data, updated by the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation on January 15, indicate that there are 1,573 cases currently pending in the NuvaRing MDL.
