The Legal Intelligencer newspaper reported today on its front page that, led by Ross Feller Casey, attorneys on both sides of lawsuits involving low testosterone therapies have joined forces to seek mass tort status for such cases in Pennsylvania.
There are 31 cases pending in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court involving claims that so-called Low T drugs have caused heart attacks, strokes and embolisms in older men who used them.
Last month, Ross Feller Casey filed a petition asking a judge to authorize mass tort status. Last week, the defendants in the cases—Auxilium Pharmaceuticals and GlaxoSmithKline – told the court they, too, supported the idea.
Ross Feller Casey attorney Mark Hoffman told The Legal Intelligencer that he was not surprised the defendants came out in support of consolidating the cases.
“It's a good example of lawyers on both sides recognizing it's in the best interest of their clients," said Hoffman.
