Over 100 NuvaRings Lawsuits Have Been Transferred to MDL in Missouri


On August 22, 2008, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation consolidated all NuvaRing lawsuits in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri. Over the past eight months, more than 100 cases have been transferred into the MDL for coordinated pretrial litigation…

The lawsuits over the Nuva Ring birth control involve allegations that use of the contraceptive caused plaintiffs to develop potentially life-threatening blood clot injuries like deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism, heart attack, strokes or sudden death…

Since the MDL was centralized in the Eastern District of Missouri before Judge Rodney Sippel, more than one hundred other NuvaRing blood clot lawsuits have been transferred by the MDL panel.

This shows how common these lawsuits are and yet it takes so many deaths even to get a black box warning on packages never mind pulling the medication.
