NECC, Compounder Involved in Meningitis Cases, Files Bankruptcy

As predicted, New England Compounding Pharamcy, Inc., the owner of the New England Compounding Center (NECC), filed for bankruptcy last week.  NECC is the company that provided contaminated steriods that killed and hurt hundreds of people, including many in Tennessee and Kentucky.

The bankruptcy filing means that no further lawsuits can be filed against NECC at this time.  The filing lists claims that were filed as of the date of the bankruptcy.  However, the list is only a partial list of claims.  Many firms, including our firm, chose not to file lawsuits against NECC at this time, knowing that a bankruptcy filing would shut down litigation against the company pending further court order.
