What is the Status of Yaz Lawsuits?

Many people across the United States and even here in Tennessee know about the drug Yaz and its dangerous side effects. Beginning in 2012, the Yaz lawsuit cases include more than 10,000 injury cases that were filed in state and federal courts across the country for women that have had problems and injuries such as: heart attack, stroke, pulmonary embolism, deep vein thrombosis, gallbladder problems, and sudden death as a result of taking Yaz. All of the federal lawsuits have been consolidated into multidistrict litigation so all federal cases filed throughout the country will be transferred to one judge for pre-trial proceedings.

Multidistrict litigation cases are similar to how a class action Yaz lawsuit would be handled; however, each claim remains an individual case. If the lawsuit is not resolved during pre-trial proceedings, then the case will go back to the federal district court where it was filed to await a trial. In October of 2010, a Case Management Order was started for federal multidistrict litigation holding three Yaz representative trials which will be used to decide how juries will respond to testimony and evidence that is to be heard and seen throughout all the Yaz cases.
