The Louisiana court overseeing thousands of Xarelto bleeding lawsuits has scheduled a hearing for January 30, 2018, following bellwether trials that concluded in December 2017. Two weeks prior to the hearing, the parties are instructed to submit joint briefs proposing how the federal litigation should proceed. Over 19,000 claims have been filed in this federal multidistrict litigation, alleging, among other things, that the pharmaceutical companies downplayed risks and inaccurately marketed Xarelto. The end of the month’s meeting will help determine the future of federally-filed Xarelto lawsuits.
