A Florida judge granted summary judgment in favor of multiple global drug manufacturers on claims of cancer from use of a heartburn medication. Shook played a lead role as Science and Discovery Counsel in the multidistrict litigation deposing experts and developing the Federal Rule 702/Daubert strategy.
The Shook litigation and science team included Partners Jennifer Hill, Patrick Oot, Kimberly Penner, Tom Sheehan and Associate Peiyuan Guo, along with the invaluable contributions of many other Shook colleagues from across the firm.
The Wall Street Journal, The American Lawyer and Law360, among other publications, covered the outcome of the case. Shook was selected, along with others, as Runners Up for “Litigators of the Week.” Law360 reported the result as one of three “Top Product Liability Cases of 2022.”
