Invokana® Lawsuit Update
An Invokana lawsuit will move a at a brisk pace thanks to a recent court order. Recently, Judge Brian Martinotti, issued Case Management Order Number 4 regarding the filing of Invokana amputation and ketoacidosis lawsuits. In the order, Judge Martinott granted Invokana victim’s the right to directly file their lawsuit in MDL 2750, In Re: Invokana Products Liability Litigation, Case Number 3:16-md-2750. To accomplish this, cases directly filed with the MDL court must follow the following:
- Cases must utilize a particular caption;
- The case must contain a statement indicating that it is being filed in accordance with CMO No. 4;
- The case must designate the venue, which will be the place of remand;
- The case must be filed electronically.
This is a great development for Invokana plaintiffs as it will substantially reduce the amount of time incurred for the case to be filed and docketed with the MDL. The first bellwether trial is set to start in September 2018.
