In a recent blog post, it was reported that NuvaRing® plaintiffs had filed a master consolidated complaint in order to supplement the complaints in the individual NuvaRing® litigation cases. On May 19, 2009, the Court dismissed the class action claims in the Master Consolidated Complaint.  The Court noted that such claims are usually not appropriate for personal injury lawsuits based on pharmaceuticals.  However, the Court dismissed the claims without prejudice, which would allow Plaintiffs to reassert their rights to a class action, if such an assertion is appropriate at some time in the future.  This dismissal did not affect the substantive claims of Negligence, Fraud, and other causes of action.
