NEW ORLEANS, Jan. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MT Services LLC, a Lawsuit Settlement News Reporting Company which operates, reports today that Xarelto lawsuits have risen to approximately 2,400 cases against Bayer and Johnson & Johnson's Janssen Pharmaceutical Division as the court has started the process of selecting cases for the initial bellwether trials. 40 cases will be selected for the Xarelto multidistrict litigation bellwether trial pool. The Xarelto multidistrict litigation (MDL) is currently underway in the U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Louisiana. A court order instructed both the plaintiffs and defense to each select 10 cases for the pool by January 11th, five from the Eastern District of Louisiana, one from Mississippi, one from Texas, and three from other states. The court order also asked the parties to try to choose at least one case from six different injury categories. The injury categories include gastrointestinal bleed, brain bleed/hemorrhagic stroke, and rectal bleeding, and the court order is requesting cases of individuals who suffered these injuries while using Xarelto to prevent stroke, as well as individuals who used Xarelto to treat pulmonary embolism or deep vein thrombosis. Additionally, they had to select an additional 20 lawsuits by January 15th including 10 cases from Louisiana, two from Mississippi, and one case each from eight other states. Four bellwether trials are set to begin in February of 2017. The first two trials are set to take place in the Eastern District of Louisiana on February 6th, 2017 and March 13th, 2017. The third and fourth trials will take place in Mississippi and Texas on April 24th, 2017 and May 30th, 2017.

Court records now indicate that approximately 2,400 Xarelto cases are pending in the Eastern District of Louisiana against Xarelto's maker, Bayer and Johnson & Johnson's subsidiary, Janssen Pharmaceutical Division.
