d'Oliveira & Associates Notes the Announcement of Zoloft Birth Defects Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) Set to Start in Mid-September 2014
Date:1/11/2013

(PRWEB) January 11, 2013

U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania Judge Cynthia M. Rufe announced during a Pre-trial order issued last month that the first Zoloft birth defects trial is set for September 14, 2014. See In re: Zoloft (Sertraline Hydrochloride) Prods. Liab.

This lawsuit alleges that although Pfizer knew about the defects as far back as the 1990s, the company continued to market their drugs without the appropriate warnings. This baby was born with multiple birth defects including anemia of prematurity, which is characterized by low red blood cell count and often requires transfusions; tracheoesophageal fistula, an abnormal connection between the trachea and esophagus, which requires surgery soon after b
