Digitek Lawsuits Transferred to MDL

Last month, the Digitek lawsuits pending around the country were consolidated in West Virginia under Judge Joseph R. Goodwin, a judge noted by the MDL Panel to be an experienced MDL transferee judge (the Serzone MDL for one) that had “a docket that will allow him to devote the needed attention to these cases.” In the order consolidating the Digitek lawsuits, the MDL Panel said that with the increasing number of MDLs, it makes sense to spread the burden among districts, noting that the Southern District of West Virginia has no current MDLs.
