Plaintiffs in the MDL are looking for accountability and reckoning with drug companies.
Joe Rice, a lead attorney for the first track of Bellwether cases set to go to trial in the fall explained that the next battle is to get depositions and documents made public instead of being hidden behind confidentiality agreements.
Many internal documents have already been released or leaked and they have been shocking.
The increasingly transparent nature of the MDL 2804 lawsuit is a distinct difference from opioid lawsuits in the past.
Attorneys general are fighting to make sure documents are made public without redactions so when facts come to light, they are fully disclosed to allow complete justice and accountability.
