Cellino Law is proud to announce that Brian A. Goldstein, MD, JD has been selected to the James F. Humphreys Complex Litigation Center’s 2021-2022 team charged with developing National Guidelines for Judges overseeing Mass Tort Multi-District Litigation. Mass Torts occur when a single wrongful action causes injury to many different people such as when individuals in many states are injured by the same defective drug or defective medical product. Mass Tort cases from across the country are often combined and transferred to a single federal court called a Multi-District Litigation (MDL) Court. All the transferred cases are then managed by a single federal judge in a single MDL Court.
The James F. Humphreys Complex Litigation Center is the premier center in the country aimed at improving the administration of justice in complex litigation and provides federal and state judges, court administrators, lawyers, and public policymakers comprehensive information about complex litigation in the United States.
Mr. Goldstein heads up Cellino Law’s Mass Tort division and was recognized as a Top 25 Mass Tort Trial Lawyer in the United States by the National Trial Lawyers Association in 2021. Along with his many duties at Cellino Law, he will be actively working to establish best practices and guidelines for Judges overseeing Multi-District Litigations to ensure that all parties and litigants are provided adequate information to assess the terms and fairness of proposed settlements.
If you or a loved one have been injured by a defective drug or medical product, it is important to reach out to an experienced Mass Tort lawyer as early as possible to secure your rights.
