U.S. Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Hormone Replacement Case
On October 12, 2010, the United States Supreme Court declined to review a published decision in favor of Martin’s clients in In re Prempro Products Liability Litigation, 591 F.3d 613 (8th Cir. 2010). Martin represented 116 plaintiffs who alleged that they developed breast cancer as a result of their use of prescription hormone replacement therapy drugs. On consolidated appeals from orders dismissing their cases, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis reversed the dismissals and directed the district court to remand the cases to Minnesota state court where they were first filed.
