First 2015 Update On Fosamax Femur Fracture Litigation: Not Much New Information To Report Out
With New Jersey State Court Fosamax Lawsuits Now Assigned To Judge Mayer, We Hope These Cases Get Back On Track
SUMMARY: From Merck's Form 10-K Annual Report For the Fiscal Year Ended December 31, 2014 we get this information about the femur fracture aspect of the Fosamax products liability litigation:
As of December 31, 2014, approximately 3,005 cases alleging Femur Fractures have been filed in New Jersey state court and are pending before Judge Jessica Mayer in Middlesex County.
Meanwhile, over at the New Jersey Courts website for the Fosamax Multicounty Litigation (accessed 3/2/15) we see some rather disappointing status information: "At this time, there are no events scheduled."
Going back to the Merck Annual Report for 2015, we get these two additional facts from the drug company:
- As of December 31, 2014, approximately 515 cases alleging Femur Fractures have been filed in California state court.
- Additionally, there are four Femur Fracture cases pending in other state courts.
Hopefully in the coming months there will be some positive developments for women who suffered a Fosamax - femur fracture event and have filed a drug injury lawsuit against Merck.
