[Auto-Post Generated Content -- Will NOT Be Monitored] Auto-Post: Federal (NJ) Fosamax® MDL UPDATE -- Next Status Hearing On June 1, 2017

Sometimes, when I am off-grid, an algorithm will collect federal court filings on cases I monitor, and reprint them -- with a generic graphic, related to that case. It is an automated machine-only initiated routine, with no (other) human/user intervention -- after the algorithm is set up by this "particularly odd. . ." blog author. Grin.

And so, there may be some odd syntax/formatting, or posts of questionable relevance or importance.

This may be one of those times:

. . . .THIS MATTER having been opened to the Court sua sponte [i.e., on its own motion]; it appearing that this Multi-District Litigation (“MDL”) has been assigned to the Undersigned following the resignation of the Hon. Joel Pisano, U.S.D.J. (now-retired); it further appearing that the Third Circuit has recently vacated a summary judgment order previously issued on March 26, 2014, and remanded this MDL for further proceedings; therefore,

IT IS on this 15th day of May, 2017,

ORDERED that in light of the remand, the Court shall conduct a telephone status conference with the appointed-lead plaintiffs’ counsel and liaison counsel, as well as defense counsel, on June 1, 2017 at 10:00 a.m.;

ORDERED that prior to the teleconference, the parties shall submit, on May 30, 2017, a joint status letter, which shall include information regarding (1) defendant’s intention to seek certiorari from the United States Supreme Court; (2) any intended motion practice; (3) settlement discussions; and (4) any other matters the parties deem appropriate at this time. . . .

/s/ Freda L. Wolfson

United States District Judge. . . .

The "Defendant" here is. . . Merck. Now you know. I am off-grid; will not respond to comments before May 22,2017. Take care.
