Eli Lilly Urges JPML to Create Novo-Only MDL for GPL-1 RAS Cases
January 23, 2024
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Eli Lilly & Co. is urging the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation to exclude it from a proposed MDL docket for cases in which patients allege gastrointestinal injuries caused by glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists such as Ozempic, Wegovy and Mounjaro.
“Since Dec. 29, 9 new Novo-only claims were filed,” the motion says. “Now 41 out of a total of 51 federal cases are filed only against Novo. There are still only 10 cases filed against Lilly. Not a single new case against Lilly has been filed. There are still only 10 cases filed against Lilly.”
