Xarelto lawsuits continue to be filed on behalf of people who suffered serious bleeds as a result of taking Xarelto. In light of how many lawsuits have been filed, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) elected to coordinate the litigation in front of a single federal judge. The JPML transferred the Xarelto litigation to Judge Eldon E. Fallon of the Eastern District of Louisiana.
Judge Fallon is a well-respected judge who has extensive experience handling large scale products liability litigation. Over the next several months, Judge Fallon will get orders in place appointing Plaintiff's counsel leadership and determining issues affecting confidentiality, document production, scheduling, and discovery among other issues. It is expected that the Xarelto litigation (entitled In re: Xarelto (Rivaroxaban) Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2592) will continue to grow exponentially with more cases being filed every month.
