Denture Cream Litigation MDL Created
July 16, 2009: On June 9, 2009, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) issued an order centralizing In re: Denture Cream Product Liability Litigation, MDL-2051, in the Southern District of Florida before Judge Cecilia M. Altonaga, who the JPML said “has the time and experience to steer this litigation on a prudent course.”
The JPML concluded that transfer under “Section 1407 will eliminate duplicative discovery; prevent inconsistent pretrial rulings; conserve the resources of the parties, their counsel and the judiciary.” The panel highlighted that “[t]hese actions share questions of fact arising out of the allegation that the levels of zinc contained in certain brands of denture cream can cause copper deficiency and neurological injuries.”
Bernstein Liebhard’s denture cream lawyers are pursuing denture cream lawsuits against the manufacturers of Poligrip and Fixodent.
