Hydroxycut Lawsuit Update

Hydroxycut lawsuits continue to mount after the weight loss/diet supplement was removed from the market after reports associated the popular product with liver damage. Later this month, a hearing will determine whether the hydroxycut lawsuits should be consolidated before one judge in an MDL (multidistrict litigation). Such an MDL has been used before in other drug lawsuits such as fen-phen and vioxx. An MDL, if approved, allows for centralization and consolidation of pre-trial discovery and motions. The MDL proposal has petitioned that the cases be heard before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California
