Seven hopefuls for pre-trial transfer will hit the argument calendar for the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation this Thursday at the Duke University School of Law in Durham, North Carolina.
The Panel plans to hear lawyers explain why their respective groups of cases should — or shouldn't – go to a single federal judge so that she or he can get them ready for trial and then send them back from whence they came for the actual trials.
The docket lists these matters for live hearing November 18:
MDL No. 2195, In re Credit Card Payment Protection Plan Mktg. and Sales Practices Litig.
MDL No. 2196, In re Polyurethane Foam Antitrust Litig.
MDL No. 2197, In re Dupuy Orthopedics, Inc., ASR Hip Implant Products Liability Litig.
MDL No. 2198, In re Toyota Motor Corp. Priud HID Headlamp Products Liability Litig.
MDL No. 2199, In re POM Wonderful, LLC, Mktg. and Sales Practices Litig.
MDL No. 2200, Armodafinil Patent Litig.
MDL No. 2201, In re Transocean Ltd. Securities Litig.
