NOTICE TO POTENTIAL ALBERTA CLASS ACTION CLAIMANTS: ACCUTANE
Cuming and Gillespie Lawyers advises that approval from the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta to dismiss the Alberta Accutane Class Action will be requested 90-days after February , 2021. If you decide to pursue a personal action against Accutane, this will give you time to access individual legal advice and commence an action.
A class action was commenced in Alberta in 2005, and in several other Provinces and States. The authorization of an Accutane class proceeding was denied in Quebec in 2013. The federal multi-district litigation cases in the Middle District of Florida were all dismissed. The remaining cases in New Jersey were dismissed in 2018, and in 2020, the higher appellate court upheld the New Jersey Supreme Court’s decision that two plaintiffs’ expert witnesses were not allowed to testify.
Given the above, we see no reasonable prospects of success for the claim in Alberta.
