Robins Kaplan Partners Appointed to Abilify MDL Litigation Leadership
December 22, 2016
On December 16, 2016, Chief Judge M. Casey Rodgers of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida appointed Robins Kaplan LLP partners to the leadership team in the Abilify Compulsivity Cases multi-district litigation. Tara Sutton is a member of the Joint Settlement Committee and Munir Meghjee is Plaintiffs’ Federal/State Liaison Counsel.
The Abilify Compulsivity cases were consolidated by the Judicial Panel on Multi-District Litigation in October 2016. The litigation involves claims that Abilify distorts the reward-seeking behaviors in patients, causing them to compulsively gamble or engage in other compulsive activities, such as hyper-sexuality, compulsive shopping, and binge eating. In August 2016, FDA ordered that the Abilify label include warnings about these behaviors.
What is Abilify?
Abilify, also known as aripiprazole, is usually prescribed to treat a variety of disorders including schizophrenia, irritability, agitation, depression, and mania. Sometimes, it is prescribed for patients along with an anti-depressant (called a serotonin reuptake inhibitor) for more severe depressive disorders. Abilify was developed and manufactured by Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., headquartered in Japan, and Bristol-Myers Squibb, headquartered in New York.
