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.

The announcement indicated that so long as all the appropriate discover had been completed at that time, the trial would begin. The judge also mentioned that the first trial would not begin until at least eight months after the briefing of any challenges to expert testimony that may be offered. Additionally, the bellwether trials are set to undergo discovery specific to the cases by January 11, 2013. The bellwether trials are cases that are chosen from the pool of cases in the MDL to do trial case runs in front of a jury so that the judge can have a better idea of how the MDL will go as MDLs are expensive and they want to avoid wasting resources.

As recent as November 19, 2012, the Zoloft MDL in Pennsylvania added a new lawsuit filed by a mother whose child was born with autism as well as other life-threatening physical birth defects after she used Zoloft while pregnant. 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
