Following on the heels of the Federal Court ordering mediation in the Yaz/Yasmin litigation, a state court judge has entered a similar order. Judge Moss, who is managing thousands of cases in Philadelphia state court, required mediation in an order published on January 6, 2012. Judge Moss’s order comes just one week after a federal judge entered a similar order. Both judges appointed Professor Stephen Saltzburg of George Washington School of Law, Washington D.C., to assist in the mediation.
Whether this is good news for women across the country hoping for a Yaz settlement remains to be seen. The parties have been ordered to negotiate in good faith, but this does not mean that they will be able to come to an agreement.
