Update: Judge Clears Suit Alleging Gilead HIV Medications Defectively Designed
May 11, 2019 – U.S. District Judge Jon S. Tigar has greenlighted a lawsuit filed by a group of patients accusing Gilead Sciences Inc. of negligence, products liability, and a host of other allegations surrounding its tenofovir disoproxil fumarate- containing HIV drugs, but agreed to narrow the scope of the case by tossing allegations that Gilead hid knowledge that the medicines are “unreasonably and unnecessarily unsafe.” Tigar cleared various other claims made in the suit, including design defect, negligence and product liability claims.

Can I File a Class Action Lawsuit?
Our lawyers have opted against the filing of a class action lawsuit in the litigation involving Viread and the other HIV drugs in its class. It has been our experience that class actions typically render many plaintiffs powerless over their own cases, whom end up having to make decisions on behalf of the entire class, rather than on what’s best for them and their loved ones. For this reason, the law offices of Schmidt & Clark, LLP, are only filing individual claims for our clients. Contact us today to learn more about your legal rights.
How Can Filing a Lawsuit Help Me?
By filing a lawsuit against the maker of Viread, you may be entitled to collect compensation for all current and future medical expenses related to the treatment of your injury, as well as for damages for pain and suffering. Additionally, filing a lawsuit can help hold the drug’s manufacturer accountable for releasing an allegedly defective drug into the marketplace, and to discourage other pharmaceutical companies from engaging in similar conduct.
