Congratulations to Lieff Cabraser attorney Kenneth Byrd for receiving the Tennessee Association for Justice 2015 Paladin Award for his outstanding work on the Florida #tobaccolawsuits. “I am honored to be recognized by my colleagues in the TAJ for our firm’s work in the cigarette cases,” stated Byrd. “The hard work of the TAJ and its members day-in and day-out helps keep the courthouse doors open in an environment that includes powerful interests who would slam the door shut. I am proud of the TAJ’s hard work and commitment to civil justice.”

Ad:  Risperdal and its companion drug Invega have been linked to gynecomastia, which is the growth of enlarged breasts in males.

In 2013, Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceuticals, the manufactures of Risperdal and Invega, entered into a $2.2 billion settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice for the “off label” promotion of the drugs. The settlement money was paid solely to the government.

Lieff Cabraser is now seeking monetary compensation for the boys and young men directly and adversely affected by Risperdal.

Ad:  Benicar Lawsuits - Answers to your questions: What are some of the serious side effects patients taking the blood pressure medication Benicar have experienced?"

Patients taking Benicar under the recommended dosage have experienced major complications, including:
severe, chronic diarrhea with substantial weight loss;
sprue-like enteropathy;
villous atrophy; and
lymphocytic, collagenous and/or miscropscopic colitis.
Sprue-like enteropathy and villous atrophy are both conditions involving destruction of the intestinal lining that are characterized by severe, chronic diarrhea, malabsorption, and substantial weight loss. These conditions often result in repeat hospitalizations, and in some cases cause secondary complications such as renal failure. The conditions can develop months to years after starting Benicar use.

Patients with Benicar-induced gastrointestinal problems are often misdiagnosed with celiac disease.

"In the age of mass production and mass marketing, class actions are necessary to allow individuals to take on multi-national corporations, where expenses of litigating would be otherwise prohibitive. The class becomes a de facto corporation for the purposes of suit, allowing individuals to band together and be equally matched against corporate defendants," Lieff Cabraser class action attorney Elizabeth Cabraser has observed.  It's no surprise then that a bill in Congress sponsored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, as explained by Los Angeles Times consumer affairs columnist David Lazarus, effectively eliminates class actions, granting corporations immunity to defraud consumers. 
Many companies already forbid you from joining other disgruntled customers in filing a class-action lawsuit, forcing you instead to take your beef to an arbitrator.

Ad: New evidence links #Zofran taken during pregnancy to control nausea with increased risks of certain birth defects.

Based on recent studies regarding the association between Zofran use in early pregnancy and congenital cardiac malformations and oral clefts (cleft lip and palate), the FDA has strongly cautioned against Zofran's use in pregnant women.

"Daiichi Sankyo and Forest Laboratories, as alleged in the complaint, insufficiently tested #Benicar before introducing it to the market and did not accompany the prescription drug with adequate instructions and warnings to apprise patients of its full risks and side effects," stated Lieff Cabraser attorney Lexi Hazam, who serves on the Plaintiffs' Steering Committee advancing the #Benicarlawsuits pending in federal court.
