Since the beginning of October 2009, over 350 YAZ®, Yasmin® and Ocella® cases from various jurisdictions throughout the country have been transferred to the MDL in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Illinois. On November 9, 2009, motions were filed to appoint Plaintiffs’ lead counsel and a Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee. The Court will hold a conference in the coming weeks to address the newly transferred cases and pending motions.
