A status conference has been scheduled for April 14, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. before Judge David R. Herndon in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Illinois.  The conference is regarding the “Yasmin and Yaz (Drospirenone) Marketing, Sales Practice and Products Liability Litigation.”  This multi-district litigation (MDL) consists of cases nationwide alleging serious injuries and deaths stemming from the use of Yaz or Yasmin birth control pills.  A status conference is a pre-trial meeting where the attorneys inform the judge as to how the case is proceeding, what discovery has been completed, settlement negotiations that have occurred, and any other matters relevant to moving the case toward trial.
