Court documents indicate that Pfizer is scheduled to begin taking depositions on August 1 of six fact witnesses, including plaintiffs, their spouse or immediate family member, or a plaintiff's health care provider who prescribed Lipitor. At the same time, Pfizer will identify two sales representatives for the plaintiffs to depose. The plaintiffs and Pfizer are to complete their depositions by October 24. A schedule for the MDL proceeding also shows that on December 15, the court will randomly select one of the remaining cases in discovery for the first jury trial scheduled on or before July 1, 2015.

As of June 16, there are 846 Lipitor lawsuits pending in the Lipitor litigation. An MDL for Lipitor lawsuits was established earlier this year by transferring all federally filed complaints regarding the medication to the federal district court in South Carolina (MDL No. 2502). The judicial panel centralized the Lipitor complaints because they all involve common questions of fact and allege that the plaintiffs developed type 2 diabetes after using Pfizer’s cholesterol-lowering drug.
