The first bellwether case over AndroGel has ran into a major snag. Reuters is reporting that the case has been declared a mistrial. The reason? One of the lawyers came down with a major illness.
The court waited a week for the lawyer to recover before declaring a mistrial. Now a new court date will have to be set.
AbbeVie, the maker of AndroGel, is accused of failing to warn about the dangers of their testosterone replacement product. The product has been linked to heart attacks, strokes, and other medical issues.
Once a bellwether case has been decided on by the court, other courts around the country will have guidance to go off of for their cases. Should the plaintiff win, it will make it much easier for other plaintiffs to reach settlements. However, if they lose then it will make it more difficult for all of the other people affected. That’s why we watch bellwether cases closely.
