Haug Partners Wins Key Decision for Adderall XR®
Today the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation issued an order denying plaintiff’s motion to transfer three antitrust consumer cases, and two potential tag-along actions, filed against Shire US Inc. and Shire LLC involving Adderall XR®. Shire opposed transfer on the grounds that the small number of actions, limited overlap of putative classes, and common counsel mean that centralization is unnecessary. The Panel agreed with Shire finding that informal cooperation among the attorneys and coordination between the courts is preferable to formal centralization.
Shire was represented by Michael Brockmeyer, John Collins, and David Zwally of Haug Partners (formerly known as Frommer Lawrence & Haug LLP).
