$25 Million Accutane Verdict Reinstated by NJ High Court

Mon, 01/30/2017

The New Jersey Supreme Court has reinstated a $25.16 million judgment in favor of an Alabama man who claims he contracted Crohn's disease after taking Accutane, an acne drug that has been the subject of mass tort litigation in the state for more than a decade.

In a unanimous ruling, the court said the verdict in favor of plaintiff Andrew McCarrell should stand, even though his lawsuit was filed after the statute of limitations in his home state had expired.
