Two more Seroquel suits dismissed in Del.
From wire reports • July 2, 2009
Two more cases have been dismissed in Delaware in the sprawling litigation over AstraZeneca's antipsychotic drug Seroquel, the drug maker said.
AstraZeneca said plaintiffs' attorneys have voluntarily dismissed the cases that were set to go to trial in November in Superior Court.
The dismissals follow a decision in May by Judge Joseph Slights III that an expert witness for another plaintiff failed to offer legally admissible testimony connecting her diabetes to her use of Seroquel. Following that decision, plaintiffs' attorneys voluntarily dismissed another case in Delaware.
AstraZeneca faces about 19,000 lawsuits nationwide from users of Seroquel who say the drug caused diabetes or related injuries.
More than 600 of those cases are pending in Delaware Superior Court.
