The court has now ruled that Bayer Pharmaceuticals can not longer edit documents that are given to plaintiffs concerning Yaz, Yasmin and other oral contraceptives.
Previously, the court had ordered that Bayer would be allowed to censor things from its sales guides such as information that the drugs contained drospirenone, which is the same active ingredient in Yasmin and Yaz.
The sales strategy is more than 30 million pages long, and workers with Bayer will have to go through and edit the censored material that they took out to restore it to its original state.
Bayer Pharmaceuticals has been under the spotlight after women began to file suits against them alleging that Yasmin and Yaz caused harmful side effects. In order to protect itself, Bayer filed an injunction that prevented plaintiffs from investigating another contraceptive that was manufactured by Bayer, Natazia. The injunction was overturned when the court found that the censored materials could lead to evidence in a case.
