Four years ago, Darvon & Darvocet were banned in the US, has anything happened since then, one might wonder?

Today Nov. 19, 2014 and it is therefore four years ago  that the pain-relieving drugs Darvon and Darvocet banned in the US. The very next day it started to pour in lawsuits against a number of US pharmaceutical companies - primarily Eli Lilly and Xanodyne - which should be designated as the really big culprits. Lawyers and people - survivors and victims of DXP - scented morning air. In Sweden and other EU substance was banned a few years ago.

Hundreds of lawyers and thousands of victims are registered, mostly in a federal court in Kentucky, Eastern District - where authorities want to place as many trials as possible. It's a reasonable thought that the court does so in order to get as much unity as possible in the various trials.

But still have no direct lawsuits initiated by the plaintiff and the defendant. However, some courts - Appeal - had a lot to do. The law - this costly employment - has been in full swing over the past years, and probably has already cost millions and one million US dollars

The sued the drug companies are likely to have acquired the foremost lawyers, they're used to being sued, while those who suffered not at all have the same organization. The drug company lawyers seem more alert, one of them offered me a cup of coffee when I had my press conference at the National Press Club in Washington DC. She fetched two mugs plenty Starbuck coffee at the nearest bar. Nice gesture.

The legal subtleties, thus has been going on for all four years and no one knows yet what will happen. I emailed to the court in Kentucky and asked when the trials would begin. A lady answered:

- The trials will begin when the court has decided that they should begin.
