Propecia®/Proscar® MDL Scheduling Update; Minor Changes Only -- Post-HRC-Debate-Win Edition

Okay -- so some of the middle dates have moved back by a week, but the overall selection date holds firm, for bell-weather case pools. A proposed agreed order was offered overnight in Brooklyn on this MDL.

Here was our last substantive update, as background. And the bolded bit below is new -- with a court response still expected to be due before Halloween 2016:

. . .The parties reached an agreement and jointly submit a scheduling modification regarding PPO No. 10 Discovery and Trial Plan submission dates, concerning three proffered trial pick selections. The current schedule requires parties to submit their selections on September 30, 2016 with responses due October 7, 2016 (see dkt. 295). The parties respectfully request a one-week extension as follows:

1. The Parties will file a statement selecting their three proffered trial pick selections on or before October 7, 2016.

2. The Parties will file a response, if any, on or before October 14, 2016.

3. In order to maintain the current trial plan schedule, the Court’s date regarding selection will remain the same, i.e., the Court will endeavor to select the First Bellwether Tranche on October 28, 2016. . . .

Now you know. And, as I walk in, on a perfectly clear, crisp morning here, I will be grinning widely -- at how soundly HRC bested Mr. Trump -- using her estimable wit, acumen and aplomb -- as well as offering lots of specific, well-thought out proposals (as opposed to his dark, vaguely hateful bluster and lack of any coherent, actionable and lawful policy pronouncements).

Even most GOP operatives now agree: Mr. Trump utterly failed at attracting any (much-needed) new demographic -- of the likely registered, voting electorate.

HRC will be our 45th President. And it will likely be Colorado that pushes her over the top -- past 270. Smile.
