Two Defendants in Accutane IBD Case Settle

This is a settlement for the Accutane lawsuit.

St. Clair County, Il: Defendants Hoffman La Roche, and Roche Laboraories have negotiated a settlement in a seven year lawsuit brought by a man who alleged he developed Accutane related inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) as a result of taking the acne medicine. The terms of the settlement are confidential.

The suit was brought by Jason Peipert who is also suing his doctor for medical malpractice. Peipert alleges that his doctor was negligent in prescribing Accutane in the late 1990s. The drug was subsequently taken off the market in the US.

This lawsuit would have been the first Accutane case to go to court, had it gone to a jury trial on its original date in 2007, however the date has been continued many times. It is currently set to go to court on April 12th.
