Living-Will The motion for class action appeal made by Fosamax plaintiffs was rejected last April 26, 2011 by the osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) Fosamax lawsuit presiding judge, District Judge John F. Keenan of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. Fosamax lawsuits set into motion against Fosamax’s manufacturer, Merck, were filed from Florida, Louisiana, and Pennsylvania district courts congruent to the location of the Fosamax plaintiffs in question. The proceeding brought forth by the Fosamax plaintiffs mentioned involves biannual dental exams and consultations for cautionary measures should be paid by Merck. Fosamax plaintiffs’ motion was rejected because none of the .plainants experienced osteonecrosis of the jaw or dead jaw which was an essential requirement to acquire class certification by the court. The conclusion made by the judge was based from various reasons. District Judge John F. Keenan concluded that: As the evidence presented shows that the risk of ONJ varies depending upon a Fosamax users unique medical history and the circumstances surrounding his or her use, the Court is not satisfied that the need for the proposed monitoring program could be proven on a class-wide basis. The appeal was also rejected by the ONJ presiding judge due to one case of a Fosamax user among the Fosamax plaintiffs who was proven to have used the drug during the time when Fosamax has not changed its label in 2005 yet. The District Judge John F. Keenan stated in his statement: [T]he plaintiffs claim cannot be considered typical of a class of plaintiffs that will include patients who took Fosamax after 2005 and will have to similarly prove negligence and failure to warn under significantly different circumstances.
