Bayer Says Requested Yasmin Production Documents Could Weigh 200 Tons

. By
East St. Louis, ILPlaintiffs in Yasmin birth control lawsuits want US District Judge David Herndon, who is presiding over all such lawsuits in the country, to seek production documents from Bayer from around the world, the St. Clair Record reports.

In November, one lead plaintiff lawyer asked for the company to produce documents on Yasmin from more than 100 different nations, the news source said.

However, an attorney for Bayer moved for a protective order on December 3, arguing that the plaintiff lawyer wanted the documents for leverage instead of actual evidence.

"The discovery demands in this litigation no longer bear any relationship to the truth-seeking function of litigation," Bayer's attorney wrote.

In the cases that have been brought before Judge Herndon, women have claimed that Yaz and Yasmin have injured their kidneys and caused them disorders in their blood stream, the news provider said.

The attorney for Bayer wrote that the documents that the company has produced "would be more than 7,000 pages long if the pages were laid end to end, and would weigh approximately 200 tons."

According to The Gateway, Yasmin and Yaz were the targets of a recent class-action lawsuit filed in Canada.
