Defending National Pharmacy Chain in Multi-District Litigation

April 20, 2005

Represented a national pharmacy chain in the defense of a large number of serious personal injury claims as a result of the use of products containing Ephedra. Due to several manufacturer bankruptcies, this litigation resulted in both multi-district litigation in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York and five separate bankruptcy mediations in New York, New Jersey, California and Canada. The largest piece of this litigation resulted in a mediated multi-million dollar settlement of more than 270 claims, involving more than 50 defendants.
