About This Case

On October 2, 2019, the United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation issued an order under 28 U.S.C. § 1407 transferring cases to the Northern District of California for coordinated or consolidated pretrial proceedings before Judge William H. Orrick.

The actions in this MDL involve allegations that Juul Labs, Inc. (JLI) has marketed its JUUL nicotine delivery products in a manner designed to attract minors, that JLI’s marketing misrepresents or omits that JUUL products are more potent and addictive than cigarettes, that JUUL products are defective and unreasonably dangerous due to their attractiveness to minors, and that JLI promotes nicotine addiction. The actions include putative class actions, actions on behalf of school districts and other governmental entities, and individual personal injury cases.
