Drug companies says there are bogus Digitek suits

CHARLESTON - Drug companies Actavis Totowa and Mylan Pharmaceuticals claim they have detected bogus lawsuits in national litigation over heart medicine Digitek.
"It is clear that many cases without any merit have been filed," Richard Dean of Cleveland wrote to U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin on July 14.
Goodwin presides over Digitek suits from around the nation by appointment of the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multi District Litigation.
Plaintiffs started suing Actavis Totowa and Mylan Pharmaceuticals last year, alleging injuries from adulterated and misbranded pills.
A Food and Drug Administration recall triggered the litigation.
