On April 21, 2016, Judge Eldon E. Fallon, the federal judge supervising and overseeing the centralized litigation against Janssen, Johnson & Johnson and Bayer over Xarelto, issued an order scheduling the depositions of plaintiffs and defense witnesses.
The court is overseeing the discovery necessary to develop several “bellwether” trials in order to evaluate the strength and weaknesses of the cases brought against the pharmaceutical giants and to determine the values of certain harms and injuries.
The depositions of the plaintiffs selected will take place in the federal courts near where the claimants live.
The Court set the order of the depositions: plaintiff, prescribing doctor, treating doctor, and the sales representative who “detailed” the doctor, to be deposed where the depositions can fit in. The Court is determined to move these serious and complicated cases forward as expeditiously and efficiently as possible.
