JUDICIAL PANEL ON MULTIDISTRICT LITIGATION
IN RE BEXTRA AND CELEBREX MARKETING, SALES PRACTICES AND PRODUCTS
(SEE ATTACHED SCHEDULE)
CONDITIONAL TRANSFER ORDER (CTO-6)
On September 6, 2005, the Panel transferred 30 civil actions to
the United States District Court for the Northern District of
California for coordinated or consolidated pretrial proceedings
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1407. Since that time, 121 additional
actions have been transferred to the Northern District of
California. With the consent of that court, all such actions have
been assigned to the Honorable Charles R. Breyer.
It appears that the actions on this conditional transfer order
involve questions of fact which are common to the actions
previously transferred to the Northern District of California and
assigned to Judge Breyer.
Pursuant to Rule 7.4 of the Rules of Procedure of the Judicial
Panel on Multidistrict Litigation, 199 F.R.D. 425, 435-36
(2001), these actions are transferred under 28 U.S.C. § 1407 to
the Northern District of California for the reasons stated in the
order of September 6, 2005, ___ F. Supp. 2d ___ (J.P.M.L. 2005),
and, with the consent of that court, assigned to the Honorable
Charles R. Breyer.
This order does not become effective until it is filed in the
Office of the Clerk of the United States District Court for the
Northern District of California. The transmittal of this order to
said Clerk shall be stayed fifteen (15) days from the entry
thereof and if any party files a notice of opposition with the
Clerk of the Panel within this fifteen (15) day period, the stay
will be continued until further order of the Panel.
