Several thousand lawsuits could be filed across the United States for serious and deadly injuries allegedly caused by the contraceptive Yaz and related drugs. These lawsuits are consolidated in Southern Illinois federal court, in East St Louis.
U.S. District Chief Judge David Herndon has the task of presiding over the lawsuits against Bayer Corp. The cases allege that the birth-control pills Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella cause women to suffer increased risks of heart attack, stroke, blood clots, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, gallbladder disease, among other life-threatening complications.
The lawsuits have been included in a consolidation proceeding called a multidistrict litigation (MDL). Cases which make similar legal claims against a common defendant are often sent to a single judge for pre-trial matters, including discovery and rulings on the admissibility of evidence.
Judge Herndon said in addition to handling the pre-trial matters, he may preside over a few “bellwether” trials to serve as examples for other trials to be conducted later around the country.
Women who have sued Bayer claim the company failed to adequately warn them of the risks associated with Yaz and illegally marketed the drug for treatments the Food and Drug Administration has not approved.
