'Yaz' sales reps must produce files for national litigation

EAST ST. LOUIS - Sales representatives who handled hormone replacements Yasmin, Yaz, Ocella, and Gianvi must produce all their files for national litigation.
On June 10, U.S. District Judge David Herndon ordered production of files from any sales representative who had contact with plaintiffs' doctors.
The order covers "all written materials, video and or audio tapes in the possession of the sales representative."
Herndon ordered Bayer Health Care Pharmaceuticals, Bayer Schering Pharma, Barr Laboratories and Teva Pharmaceuticals to produce records from their facilities, third party storage vendors, or homes and automobiles of sales representatives.
The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multi District appointed Herndon last year to preside over suits from federal courts around the nation claiming the drugs harmed women.
Plaintiff lawyers have begun submitting individual fact sheets, and defendants must respond with fact sheets of their own in 45 days.
Defendants must produce files of sales representatives no later than 60 days before plaintiffs start taking depositions.
