Takeda, the manufacturer of the dangerous diabetes medication Actos, is facing it’s first federal bellwether trial on January 27, 2014. This trial could pave the way for justice and settlements for the thousands of Americans who suffered bladder cancer while taking Actos. In significant rulings, the Court denied challenges by Takeda to plaintiff’s scientific evidence showing that Actos causes bladder cancer. The second bellwether is set to commence in April 2014.
