6th Circuit Slows Nationwide Prescription Record Discovery

A three-judge panel of the Sixth Circuit partially stayed an order from U.S. District Judge Dan Aaron Polster that would have required pharmacies to disclose 14 years’ worth of prescription data in the Ohio-based opioid multidistrict litigation proceedings, Law360 reports.

The court stayed the production of the nationwide prescription data until the plaintiffs submit new briefs explaining the need for the data. The court did, though, say the pharmacies must produce the data related to Ohio, since two counties in the state are preparing for bellwether trials. The court gave the plaintiffs, and Judge Polster, 15 days to respond.
