Reglan: JPML Hearing held in Louisville, KY

A motion to form an MDL, or Multidistrict Litigation, was argued yesterday before the JPML sitting in Louisville, Kentucky. There are at least 15 Reglan lawsuits pending in 11 different district courts throughout the United States.

Reglan is prescribed to treat gastrointestinal disorders like diabetic gastroparesis, GERD (gastroesphageal reflux and delayed gastrict emptying.

Request for Reglan lawsuit consolidation was opposed by the attorneys for companies involved in the litigation, including Wyeth, who manufactured the brand name Reglan products, and several manufacturers of generic versions, such as Baxter, Pliva, Barr, Duramed, Actavis, Teva and Scwarz Pharma.
