Reglan: No MDL For Litigation

The JPML heard argument last week regarding a request by Plaintiffs' lawyers to consolidate proceedings involving Reglan. Reglan (metoclopramide) is prescribed for short-term treatment of gastrointestinal disorders.

The Petition was opposed by several drug maker of metoclopramide including Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Actavis Elizabeth, Barr Pharmaceuticals and Pliva.

What's next? Likely a mess of results or rulings in multiple courts, both State and Federal.
