GOODELL DEVRIES WINS "FAILURE TO WARN" CASE
Richard M. Barnes and Michael L. Lisak won summary judgment in Minnesota for a leading pharmaceutical company in a case in which the plaintiff alleged that the firm's client's medications caused her breast cancer.

Plaintiff alleged long-term use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) manufactured by defendants who failed to adequately warn of the risks associated with their respective hormone medications.

The judge ruled, in response to briefing and argument, that plaintiff failed to carry her burden of proving through admissible evidence that she ingested our client’s medication.

Bonnie J. Beavan, who was scheduled to try the case in November, was instrumental in the success.
