This Monday and Tuesday: Important Days for DES Breast Cancer Cases

18 Sep

This week, the first part of the historic DES breast cancer cases will be wrapping up in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts in Boston. The result of this trial will determine if the first ever series of DES breast cancer lawsuits in the US can survive Daubert scrutiny on causality and be allowed to go forward.

Aaron M. Levine and Julie Oliver-Zhang from Aaron M. Levine & Associates are representing the 53 DES Daughters involved in these breast cancer cases.

This Monday and Tuesday are crucial days for the joint DES breast cancer cases. Please be in the Boston courtroom on those days, if you can!

The hearings will likely begin at 9:30 a.m. and go until 4:30 p.m. each day, with lunch in between. The courthouse is at:

United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts — Boston

1 Courthouse Way

Boston, Massachusetts 02210

(617) 748-9152

There has been little press coverage and apparently little public attention. The chemical companies prefer it that way.  It’s just two lawyers for the plaintiffs and about 20 lawyers representing the chemical companies in the court room!

Below is a message from  attorney Aaron Levine about the cases:

Our firm is single-handedly presenting the case for 53 DES daughters with Breast Cancer.  We have been fighting for three years now and have put together a team of world renowned scientists who have concluded DES pre-natal exposure causes a significant increase in the risk of Breast Cancer in the  40 years old plus, population.

The drug companies have fought hard and the attached brief sets forth our case against them.   The case will be heard by Judge Bowler in Boston at the John Joseph Moakley Courthouse, Sept 7-23, 2011.  The hearing is open to the public if you would like to attend.

If you want any more information or feel you could help our case in any way, please call Toll Free: 1-888-868-5380.
