NEW ORLEANS, June 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, reports today that in the most recent news involving the Xarelto multidistrict litigation (MDL), a court meeting was set to take place June 15[] to identify between 40 and 60 plaintiffs for specific discovery and address the timing in the selection of the upcoming bellwether trials. The court released a case management order in May, which addressed several different issues. In the case management order were specific deadlines for pre-trial processes so everything would move forward accordingly. Just a few days prior from the most recent court meeting, they had set aside a "science day" to discuss scientific publications which were relevant to the multidistrict litigation over Xarelto, showing any increased risk of side effects when taking the drug. The federal multidistrict litigation (MDL) is being overseen in the U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Louisiana (In Re: Xarelto Products Liability Litigation, No. 2592).

According to court documents, there are more than 300 lawsuits filed over Xarelto just in the federal litigation in Louisiana, while there are about 160 known cases as of now with similar claims pending in Pennsylvania's mass tort proceeding. The lawsuits against Bayer and Johnson & Johnson's subsidiary, Janssen Pharmaceutical Division, include claims of serious health problems and even death as a result of using the blood thinner, Xarelto, because of uncontrollable bleeding events. According to experts, there is no known antidote at this time. Due to the ongoing MDL, Legal-Bay, a law cash advance company, is reaffirming the fact that they are sufficiently prepared to handle large Xarelto pre-settlement funding requests for those who have experienced complications from using the blood thinner.

Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay, commented on the recent announcement, "We are happy to see that the Xarelto litigation is beginning to move into a bellwether trial posture, as we believe this litigation is shaping up to include a lot of plaintiffs when it is all said and done. However, we still expect the litigation to drag on and take many years to resolve. We strongly urge patients who have not hired counsel to do so quickly."
