Federal Court Fosamax MDL Reassigned From Judge Pisano To Judge Wolfson While We Wait For Appellate Court To Rule On Appeals From Glynn And Gaynor Case Rulings
SUMMARY: In early April 2015 a California jury sided with Merck, i.e., defense verdict, in this Fosamax – femur fracture lawsuit, Galper v. Merck.
Meanwhile, in the federal court Fosamax MDL, on March 10, 2015 Judge Freda Wolfson was appointed to replace Judge Joel Pisano. Otherwise, the federal court Fosamax lawsuits are in an apparent “holding pattern” while the parties wait for the appellate court to issue rulings on two appeals regarding the Fosamax label, or package insert, information about the femur fracture side effect.
As for the current status of the New Jersey Fosamax lawsuits consolidation, it appears that Middlesex County Judge Jessica Mayer is content on waiting for the federal appellate court rulings to be issued. Perhaps she will surprise us, however, and finally have a long-overdue trial for the Unanski v. Merck case, for example.
And for the number of Fosamax femur fracture lawsuits as of March 31, 2015:
• 515 cases have been filed in California state court;
• 1,040 were pending in the Fosamax femur fracture MDL in federal court; and,
• 3,050 cases have been filed in New Jersey state court.
Lastly, the results of two more California femur fracture trials scheduled for July 2015 and October 2015 are much anticipated.[Read this article in full at original source]
