Generic Zantac Lawsuit: Are These Claims Still Valid?

With thousands of Zantac lawsuits begin filed, alleging that Zantac causes cancer, many potential plaintiffs are wondering, “Can I file a generic Zantac lawsuit?”

In recent days, a judge’s ruling in the Zantac multi-district litigation (MDL) has caused confusion, and many initially thought that claims involving generic Zantac (ranitidine) were no longer valid.

This is false.

Recent Ruling on Generic Zantac Lawsuits: Are Generic Claims Still Valid?

Due to a complicated legal concept called “preemption,” many initially believed that U.S. District Judge Robin Rosenberg was rejecting plaintiffs’ claims against generic Zantac manufacturers.

However, in reality, the court ordered plaintiffs to replead their cases. In the ruling, the court actually laid out a legal “roadmap” that generic Zantac lawsuit plaintiffs can use to respond to the order. Repleading is a fairly common legal maneuver, and essentially allows plaintiffs the opportunity to present their arguments again for additional consideration by the court.

So, to be clear, those who have been diagnosed with cancer after taking generic Zantac (ranitidine) may still qualify for a generic Zantac lawsuit and be eligible for compensation.

The recent ruling on Zantac generic lawsuits does not dismiss generic Zantac lawsuits by itself. The order to replead gives plaintiffs an opportunity to further strengthen their case against ranitidine manufacturers.
