The Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation met in March to decide whether to consolidate in one court all Zoloft cases filed in federal courts across the country. On April 17th, the Panel decided that consolidation would promote the just and efficient administration of the cases and assigned the consolidated litigation to the Honorable Cynthia M. Rufe in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. The first status conference was held by the Court on July 12, 2012.
Andy Birchfield, the Section Head of our firm’s Mass Torts Section, has been appointed to the Plaintiff Steering Committee. The PSC is charged by Judge Rufe with overseeing how the Zoloft litigation progresses through the MDL/federal court system. We are highly pleased with the progress being made in the Zoloft MDL.
