Baycol Class Approved

A state court judge approved a class action settlement that would reimburse unions, employers and health plans for money spent on the recalled cholesterol drug Baycol.

The judge in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas gave preliminary approval to the national class action settlement.

The attorney for the Plaintiffs' group is Stewart Cohen. Cohen's original clients included a Philadelphia firefighters' union. He works with my Chris Placitella in PA. Go here for their website. My firm works with Placitella on cases involving Vioxx.
