Yasmin And YAZ Lawsuits Are Consolidated In Pennsylvania

This post is not meant to be a fake-out—the JPML has a hearing set for tomorrow before it mulls over whether and where to send federal YAZ and Yasmin lawsuits (see our prior post on the MDL). However, Pennsylvania has what some lawyers call a “mini-MDL” program. Now, cases filed in Philadelphia for YAZ and Yasmin will be consolidated in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas. The mass tort program will serve the same purposes as an MDL—it will ensure that the YAZ and Yasmin drug cases are all put before one judge who can manage discovery, motions, and make things more efficient.
