What is Multidistrict Litigation?
Cases for compensation against the makers of Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella have been filed across the country. However, to streamline the numerous cases open against the makers of these drugs, the federal court system has moved all of these claims into a single, central district for certain parts of the trial. This is known as using multidistrict litigation, and is fairly common in large-scale injury claims.
If you’ve been injured because of the birth control medications Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella, there may be complicated issues involved in the case that need to be handled carefully.

Multidistrict Litigation Details
When the federal courts set up multidistrict litigation, there are a few important things that change about a case. These include the following:
- All pretrial processes associated with the case are moved to a single court
- All discovery orders and similar evidence-related processes are also moved
- If no settlement or case dismissal occurs, the case returns to its home court
The reason the federal courts prefer to set up multidistrict litigation is because it centralizes the resources needed for similar cases, allowing the original courts to handle the case once the facts begin to differ significantly. Overall, this makes cases easier for the court system to handle.
