What’s the problem?

A federal jury in Illinois found AbbVie Inc. liable for failing to adequately warn of the severe cardiovascular complications linked to use of its AndroGel supplement, ordering the company to pay Plaintiff Jesse Mitchell, who claimed the product contributed to his development of a heart attack, $3 million in damages. The ruling marks closure of Mitchell’s second trial over AndroGel; he was awarded $150 million in that dispute, only to have the award turned over by U.S. District Judge Matthew Kennelly, who found the verdict to be “logically incompatible.”

During the first trial, the jury found AbbVie guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation, handing down the massive penalty in large part as punitive damages against the company for what it saw as continued negligence, rather than compensating Mitchell for his injuries.

To date, nearly 7,000 federal testosterone lawsuits have been added into mdl 2545 in the Northern District of Illinois, the vast majority of which have been filed over AndroGel.
