The discovery of a carcinogenic chemical in the popular heartburn drug Zantac prompted thousands of victims to file a Zantac lawsuit. The Zantac lawsuits in federal courts have been consolidated into a “class-action” MDL before Judge Robin Rosenberg in the Southern District of Florida.

Judge Rosenberg is meeting with counsel for both sides to hammer out the details for how individual cases will be selected for “bellwether” trials, which will begin a little over a year from now. Bellwether cases are expected to be selected based on the type of cancer involved.

The outcome of these initial test trials will be critically important in determining whether the Zantac lawsuits get resolved in a global settlement.
