U.S. Organizations Prosecute Juul for Pre-Trial in California, Case Number Continues to Increase
February 11, according to foreign reports, the U.S. Multi-District Litigation Judicial Committee (JPML) ordered last October to merge all federal JUUL lawsuits into one court of the U.S. District Court in Northern California to conduct glass pipes custom pre-trial proceedings. Magistrate William H. Auric was appointed to oversee the process.
Since then, both sides have been trying to prepare a limited number of cases for early trials. At the same time, litigation cases have been increasing, with nearly 300 pending lawsuits, and more lawsuits are expected in the coming months.
According to the recent case management meeting held on January 13, 2020, the court discussed many topics, including the importance of continuous civilization and cooperation between lawyers, and the need for the parties to consider effective methods and timing for reconciliation discussions.
The Court reminded the parties of the importance of effective coordination with the actions of the state courts and requested that a list of all pending motions and a proposed timetable for their resolution be made before the next status meeting.
Finally, the court set the case management schedule to normally take place on the third Friday of each month. The next lawsuit is scheduled to be held on February 14, 2020, and the next one is scheduled to be held on March 20, 2020.
JUUL is facing more and more lawsuits in state courts across the country. In addition to individuals claiming to have been harmed by JUUL's electronic cigarette products, the school filed a claim with the company, claiming that JUUL has greatly promoted smoking among high and middle school students.
Among the districts that have filed JUUL lawsuits are the San Diego Unified School District, the Los Angeles Unified School District and other districts in Glendale, Compton and Anaheim.
This is only in California. The same is true of others such as Kansas, Missouri, New York and Washington.
San Diego, in particular, is demanding compensation for financial losses suffered by students who are absent from work related to glass pipes and bongs , which may reduce federal funds available to schools. The school also tried to hold JUUL responsible for the promotion program aimed at recruiting young users.
