NuvaRing Lawsuit Ruling

A state judge in New Jersey refused this Spring to strike down claims for punitive damages in nine NuvaRing contraceptive cases scheduled to be tried in the next three years. Lawyers for Merck and Organon USA Inc., makers of NuvaRing, had moved for summary judgement to dismiss punitive damages in these cases. Judge Brian R. Martinotti refused to grant that judgement, because the injuries plaintiffs allege from the popular contraceptive implant drug device occurred in several different states, each of which has an interest in deciding punitive damages for itself.
