The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Andrew Boatright. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on June 1st, 2012, the lawsuit of Andrew Boatright v Hoffman-La Roche was removed by the defendants to federal court (case no. 2:2012cv03115, Pennsylvania Eastern District Court). Plaintiff claims he was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease after taking Accutane. Accutane (isotretinoin), a popular acne medication, was introduced in 1982 and in 2009 as the number of lawsuits against Hoffman-LaRoche kept increasing the drug was pulled from the US market.
In the lawsuit Boatright claims he took Accutane to treat his acne from late 1997 to early 1998. After taking the drug he was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease, a type of inflammatory bowel disease.
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, can provide helpful advice and simple solutions including how to get in contact with legal counsel so that, in case of severe adverse events from Accutane, someone can easily and inexpensively deal with it. As Mr. Burke, director of Media Relations for AttorneyOne.com, added, “What all this information really illustrates is that threat from Accutane remains. For that reason, our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
As Bloomberg reported on June 30th 2012, a New Jersey jury ruled that Hoffman-LaRoche must pay $18 million in damages to two former Accutane users, Kathleen Rossitto and Riley Wilkinson (case no. ATL-l-7481-10-MT and ATL-L-1311-08-MT). In a 2008 trial, Kamie S. Kendall, who accused Accutane for her ulcerative colitis, was awarded over $10.5 million by a jury (case no A-73-2010–066802).
