BIRMINGHAM, Alabama - Pfizer Inc. today took another big step towards shedding itself of the more than 2,500 lawsuits filed against its anti-smoking drug Chantix.
Pfizer and a South Carolina attorney have agreed on final settlement for about 660 Chantix lawsuits, according to a court document filed in federal court in Birmingham this morning.
That group of lawsuits was filed between 2009 and 2012 by people who complained of variety of psychological problems, including suicides or suicide attempts. All federal lawsuits against Pfizer and its Chantix drug nationwide were consolidated in the Northern District of Alabama under U.S. District Court Judge Inge Johnson and at one time numbered about 2,700.
Under an "omnibus stipulation of dismissal with prejudice" filed this morning in federal court in Birmingham, the plaintiffs' claims in the approximately 660 lawsuits are to be dismissed without costs or attorneys' fees to any party.
