Invokana cases have a case management conference to be convened on 16th of this month when both parties will get a chance to meet the judge to talk about how to handle the case.
The number of Invokana lawsuits in Invokana MDL 2750 has crossed 860 in the U.S. District Court, District of New Jersey, filed by the plaintiffs who claim they suffered from diabetic ketoacidosis or other side effects due to their use of Invokana or Invokamet.
The Invokana cases are presided by U.S. District Judge Brian Martinotti and the trials for a small number of bellwether cases are expected to begin in September 2018. Apart from this, several federal cases are pending in the Southern District of California and the Eastern District of Missouri, as well as state court cases in California, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
Allegations mainly involve kidney failure, heart attacks, and diabetic ketoacidosis, with a recent addition of increased risk of leg or foot amputations following a warning released by the FDA in May 2017.
