The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than patients who suffer from Accutane severe side effects. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
On Jan. 18th 2012, the Honorable Judge Carol E. Higbee ordered an extended deadline for the sixth wave of core discovery for the Accutane lawsuit mass tort in New Jersey. According to this order, which extended both deadlines by three months Wave VI(A) cases must be completed by April 26, 2012, and Wave VI(B) case completion will be required by June 10, 2012.
Over 7,000 lawsuits which have been filed as of Feb. 6th 2012, with the most recent added on Feb. 2nd 2012, are consolidated in the ongoing state mass tort litigation in New Jersey. Moreover, many claims are also filed in the U.S. District Court in Florida.
On June 29th, 2009, Hoffman-LaRoche pulled the product from U.S. markets. Nevertheless, the drug’s severe adverse effects, including inflammatory bowel disease and Crohns disease, often manifest years after a patient has stopped taking the drug.
