Welcome to Critical Mass, Law.com’s new briefing on class actions and mass torts. I’m Amanda Bronstad in Los Angeles. This week, a federal judge told lawyers in the opioid MDL that he wanted a settlement plan – and fast. And in Philadelphia, a $28 million verdict over Xarelto was reversed. Former U.S. Sen. Carl Levin, a Michigan Democrat, could end up mediating the Flint water contamination cases. And my colleague Scott Flaherty has some more insight on this week’s announcement that Milberg would merge with Sanders Phillips Grossman.
