Xarelto Case Numbers Grow as Settlement Pressures Intensify
"I need to devise an endgame..." Judge Fallon, US District Court Judge, LA
On January 30th, 2018 during a monthly status conference hearing, US District Court Judge Eldon Fallon of Louisiana stated that "this MDL is nearing its end," and started taking steps to press all parties towards a resolution.
Judge Fallon then selected a total of 1,200 cases to be designated for remand back to the court of their origin for trial or settlement.
This decision in Louisiana may influence other federal judges to follow suit, possibly sparking a surge of Xarelto settlements across the country.
