Recent Court Decisions
The Superior Court of New Jersey consolidated the Reglan/Metoclopramide litigation in Atlantic County under Judge Higbee. We are deeply involved in this litigation and hold a leadership position amongst the Plaintiffs.
In a recent decision, the Court has granted the name brand defendants' (Wyeth, Schwarz & Alavan) motion to dismiss the New Jersey Plaintiffs' complaints against them. In these cases the Plaintiffs' ingested the generic form of Reglan and not a product that was produced or sold by the brand defendants. Based upon New Jersey law and precedent, this decision is applicable to all New Jersey plaintiffs' cases.
The recent Supreme Court decision PLIVA v. Mensing has been a significant hurdle for the Reglan litigation. The plaintiffs are currently working to overcome this hurdle, but it's definitely an uphill battle. The court is currently reviewing the Plaintiff and Defendant briefs on the Mensing issue. We hope to have a more substantive update once the issue is decided by the court, but right now we still exploring alternate avenues that may be available to our clients in the event of an unfavorable decision by the court.
