The Risperdal and Invega Product Liability Cases, consisting of approximately 700 individual personal injury lawsuits, were filed across the State of California against Johnson & Johnson.  Alleging irreversible side effects following use of the pharmaceutical giant’s anti-psychotic drugs, the various complaints were coordinated before a single judge as part of the State’s Judicial Council Coordinated Proceeding process.  Case Anywhere was selected by liaison counsel to streamline this sprawling pharmaceutical litigation on its secure, online platform. 

Since launching the dedicated site in 2014, Case Anywhere has worked closely with lead counsel to provide the Los Angeles Superior Court and firms across the country with an effective tool to communicate, e-serve, and access case documents.  To date, over 500 legal professionals have been set up as authorized users with access to this case file in the office or on the road.  Over 30,000 documents have been served via Case Anywhere’s single screen upload interface, with new documents being uploaded daily.  Regular communication between Court and counsel over the message board has resulted in substantial savings in time and money by reducing the number of filings and hearings in this coordinated matter.

The Watts Regulator Cases – 112 individual product liability lawsuits assigned to the complex department of the Orange County Superior Court – launched on Case Anywhere in the fourth quarter of 2016. Although sharing a common defendant, these cases had not been formally joined together as related or consolidated matters.  The parties needed a solution that would coordinate these proceedings for administrative purposes, while maintaining individual service lists.

Case Anywhere proposed a customized parent/child case structure which provided the required flexibility.  One core (parent) case file was created with over 100 sub (children) case files.  Each individual file contained records specific to that proceeding and was made accessible only to counsel of record for that matter. The platform also included a master message board available to Court and counsel and an interface for e-serving filed documents and discovery.  The tailored solution devised by Case Anywhere allowed the parties to efficiently organize a large number of cases through a single, easy-to-use platform.

Client Testimonial

"The use of Case Anywhere has been extremely helpful in our litigation of complex, multi-party proceedings. We were recently involved in the transfer and coordination of over 100 litigated cases in Orange County. Case Anywhere was critical in streamlining this process. They assisted us with setting up customized folders for grouped cases and individual related proceedings. The sophisticated e-service features allowed us to target service into particular cases; within those cases, we could limit our service to specific organizations or individuals as needed. I would recommend Case Anywhere to any litigator handling multi-party or complex proceedings."

Since late 2015, Case Anywhere has hosted the Southern California Gas Leak Cases.  These individual cases, arising out of a natural gas leak in Aliso County, were coordinated by the Judicial Council of the State of California and assigned to the Los Angeles Superior Court.  Following coordination, the number of new complaints mushroomed.  Based on its reputation and track record of efficiently handling complex cases, Case Anywhere was selected by liaison counsel to set up an e-service and messaging site for this mass toxic tort lawsuit.

By choosing Case Anywhere early in the process, counsel established an efficient protocol for document sharing and informal communication between court and counsel that has streamlined case management every step of the way.  As the Southern California Gas Leak Cases have morphed into one of the largest litigations in the State of California, Case Anywhere has worked closely with lead attorneys in adapting its flexible architecture to meet the changing needs of the case.  Almost 900 legal professionals have access to one of the more than 300 individual actions in the coordinated case.  Six related actions are also currently being housed in a custom parent/child case structure which was developed at the request of counsel.

The Toyota Motor Cases began as 35 cases coordinated by the Judicial Council of California in 2010.  These high-profile complaints allege that certain vehicles manufactured by Toyota are prone to experience incidents of unintended acceleration.  The number of cases expanded rapidly with over 200 individual actions filed throughout California eventually coordinated into this one sprawling litigation.

The parties selected Case Anywhere as their case management and e-service partner.  Since initiating the case file soon after coordination, Case Anywhere has actively managed the service list through a series of new representations, dismissals, substitutions, and other updates.  Counsel entering the action after the site was launched have realized the immediate benefit of having access to a complete case file which currently includes over 6000 documents.  Communication between Court and counsel via the message board has also streamlined the case, allowing matters which might otherwise require a court appearance or filing to be addressed quickly and informally.  Through the many twists and turns of this litigation, over 175 law firms and the Court have been able to depend on the secure, easy-to-use platform set up by Case Anywhere.
