To date there have been no Xarelto settlements on any group basis. Legal actions are ongoing with lawsuits continuing to be filed.
Lawsuits have been filed against the maker of Xarelto, Janssen Pharmaceutical, as well as Bayer Healthcare, the company that marketed the drug. These complaints/lawsuits allege these drug corporations should have warned patients suffering from irregular heartbeats of the increased risks of having a stroke and of excessive bleeding when taking Xarelto.
This is not a class action Xarelto lawsuit. All lawsuits were filed individually and have now been joined together in one court. All new cases filed going forward will be added to this group. The group is called a Multi District Litigation (MDL). The assigned Federal MDL court is located in Louisiana before Judge Fallon. Extensive court discovery is now taking place and will continue until September, 2016. After that date the cases will be individually tried before juries. In fact, the first such Xarelto cases trials have been set for 2/6/2017, 3/13/2017, and 4/24/2017.
