Just yesterday, 11 new lawsuits were filed in US District Court in Boston against the New England Compounding Pharmacy in Framingham over its fungus-laced anti-pain medicines.
Alaunus Pharmaceutical, a Framingham drug wholesaler with the same owners as the shuttered New England Compounding Center, yesterday sued Michigan residents who say they or family members suffered fungal meningitis from a pain reliever sold by New England Compounding Center.
In the lawsuit, filed in US District Court in Boston, Alaunus says it had nothing to do with the spore-laden drugs sold by NECC and that those 49 people should just leave it the hell alone.
The lawsuit seeks a ruling by the court that it had nothing to do with anybody's fungal meningitis:
Five more lawsuits were either filed in or transferred to federal court in Boston on Tuesday and Wednesday against the New England Compounding Center over its fungus-tainted painkiller medications, adding to the pile of legal complaints against the now shuttered pharmacy.
A man who says he contracted meningitis from a painkiller prepared by the New England Compounding Center and a man who says he's suffered mental anguish because he also got one of those painkiller shots have sued the pharmacy and its owners.
The suits, originally filed in state court, were moved to US District Court in Boston this week. Last week, a Pennsylvania woman who says she has suffered possibly permanent damage from one of the infected shots, also filed suit.
