The Ozempic lawsuit, which is now consolidated in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, involves allegations against Novo Nordisk, the drug's manufacturer. Filed by individuals who have used Ozempic or Wegovy, the lawsuits allege serious and permanent injuries from the use of these drugs, prescribed for diabetes and weight loss. The Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) decided to centralize these cases to streamline the litigation process due to shared factual and legal issues among the lawsuits. This consolidation marks a significant step in the litigation, aiming for a more efficient process given the volume of cases sharing common allegations against Novo Nordisk. These allegations mainly concern failures to warn about risks associated with the drugs, particularly gastrointestinal and gallbladder issues, as well as increased risks associated with surgical procedures requiring general anesthesia【45†source】【46†source】【47†source】.

As of March 2024, the first status conference is scheduled for March 14, 2024, under Judge Gene E.K. Pratter, which will give an initial look at how the Ozempic lawsuit is progressing. The lawsuits highlight the legal and health-related challenges surrounding Ozempic, focusing on severe side effects like stomach paralysis affecting thousands of people. The early stages of Multidistrict Litigation emphasize the complexity of mass tort litigation, with different law firms vying for authority over the case's direction. This case brings to light significant issues regarding drug safety, corporate responsibility, and the adequacy of warnings provided to patients and healthcare providers【47†source】.
