Plaintiffs have brought claims against the makers of YAZ®, Yasmin® and Ocella®, for injuries ranging from internal organ damage (including gallbladder damage), to deep vein thrombosis (or blood clots), stroke, heart attack, myocardial infarction and pulmonary embolism.

A large number of such cases have been designated as Multidistrict Litigation (MDL) cases in the federal courts, to be consolidated for case management and discovery purposes before Judge Herndon the United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois. In the MDL, on November 12, 2009, the Court appointed attorneys to act as Defendants’ Lead and Liason Counsel, as well as Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee. These select attorneys will be primarily responsible for conducting litigation activities for the consolidated cases.
