As described in the Tennessean (9/30, Roche), last week in Massachusetts, US Bankruptcy Judge Henry Boroff set a Jan. 15, 2014, deadline for victims of the nationwide fungal meningitis outbreak to file claims in the bankruptcy case of the company blamed for the deaths of 64 patients.
NECC is the manufacturer of contaminated steroid shots that were distributed to medical facilities in at least 23 states exposing thousands of patients to fungal meningitis.
In the order, Judge Boroff included “detailed instructions on the information victims or their survivors must provide to have their claims” against NECC taken into consideration.
