Pharmaceutical Liability

Represented pharmaceutical corporation in 53 separate pharmaceutical product liability lawsuits alleging personal injuries from the use of an FDA-approved cancer treatment. In the course of this representation, Farella developed successful pre-trial strategies that greatly reduced or limited the ability of certain plaintiffs to recover damages, and took the lead in the fact discovery and depositions in those cases. Those strategies resulted in several summary judgment orders as well as voluntary dismissals. Sandra Edwards also participated in a three-week jury trial in the Eastern District of California in which a directed verdict was returned for the client, followed by a unanimous defense verdict.
