Products Liability Group Scores Significant Victory

December 15, 2005

The firm scored a significant victory for our client Abbott Laboratories in a case alleging that infant formula manufactured by Abbott's Ross Division caused an infant to develop type 1 diabetes. On a motion for summary judgment based on Daubert, our lawyers successfully convinced the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York that plaintiffs' expert lacked a reliable basis for his opinion linking Abbott's infant formula to the disease.
