Nick Wittner Quoted in BloombergBNA Class Action Litigation Report Article on Supreme Court Assumption of Plavix Jurisdiction Case

January 27, 2017

Nicholas J. Wittner, Bloomfield Hills-based Of Counsel in Dykema’s Litigation Department, was quoted at length in the BloombergBNA Class Action Litigation Report article, “Bristol-Myers Case Could Have Wide Effect, Attorneys Say.”

The article explains that a California class-action case consolidating more than 670 multi-state claims against Bristol-Myers’ blood-thinning medicine will be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court so as to determine if California is the legal venue, or if jurisdiction should be divided up. Wittner believes the Supreme Court wishes to resolve conflicting definitions of “general” and “specific” jurisdictions.
