The hearing on the Petition to consolidate the Yaz, Yasmin and Ocella product liability litigation in the Northern District of Ohio has been set for September 24, 2009 in Richmond, Virginia.
The hearing will be held before the Judicial Panel on Multi -District Litigation. If the case is consolidated as an “MDL” case it will be sent to a single judge for case management purposes. For a detailed explanation of the workings and purpose of an MDL you may go to our earlier blog article.
A decision by the Panel is normally issued within two to four weeks of the hearing. Meanwhile cases continue to get filed in both federal and state courts around the country.
If you or a loved one has suffered serious injury such as stroke, pulmonary embolism, DVT or organ failure involving gall bladder or pancreas you should immediately seek legal advice.
Yaz and Yasmin are different from other available birth control pills, as they contain drospirenone, which is a new type of progestin.
Drospirenone is used in combination with ethinyl estradiol in the pills to prevent unwanted pregnancy, but it can also increase potassium levels and lead to hyperkalemia, which could increase the risk of various heart problems.
This is because Drospirenone has a diuretic action similar to Spironolactone, a potassium sparing diuretic.
