Lots of Documents Produced During Discovery in Duragesic & Fentanyl Lawsuits
At my Dangerous Drugs web site, I’ve posted quite a few documents produced during discovery in product liability lawsuits against the makers of the Duragesic fentanyl patch. They really shed some light on how these defective patches were made and made it onto the market. I’ll be posting more in the near future, but here are some of the best so far:
- Production records and internal investigation reports about Duragesic manufacturing processes.
- An expert report from a Duragesic lawsuit explaining how fentanyl patches can kill
- A deposition from the same expert witness in a Duragesic lawsuit
- An expert report based upon the Duragesic production records linked to above.
- A deposition of the inventor of the Duragesic fentanyl patch – watch him be evasive.
- The FDA inspection report of the Duragesic lawsuit. This only came out because of the Duragesic lawsuit.
- Details about the Bodolay 1 machine that made Duragesic patches.
- A deposition that explains Duragesic quality control inspectors had to visually inspect 4 patches per second!
The more I read about the fentanyl patch, the more convinced I am that it’s a dangerously defective product. I’m very thankful these documents became public thanks to several Duragesic lawsuits. Separate and apart from compensating the victims of defective products, these lawsuits help keep the public informed about the processes and procedures companies use to make pharmaceutical products. As I turn up more documents, I’ll keep posting them. Keep watching this site and my Dangerous Drugs website for more.
