New! With Now Daily Propecia® MDL Documents Updates: The Good Doctor Must Appear — At High Noon, On September 10, 2015, Sez US Magistrate Judge

The emminently capable Magistrate Judge Pohorelsky, sitting in Brooklyn’s federal District courthouse has ruled that the doctor will be given one additionnal week to prepare, but that both she — and her Weill-Cornell Medical Center lawyer — WILL in fact have to appear personally, to answer his questions about the state of the play, on these supposed 16 to 40 boxes of study documents. Now that is. . . fascinating.

So — if anyone were to wander by (and bring a picture ID, to be granted admission to the gallery) they could sit in that day, in Brooklyn. It could turn out to be a pretty darn interesting show cause hearing, given the interplay between what has been reported to be the doctor’s earlier position — per her lawyer — and what we all understand the federal rules governing national clinical trials for FDA approval of new drug candidates might have required of her. Do stay tuned, but I have no plans to be in New York that day, at this point. Here is the full text of today’s order — just entered, below:

. . . .Order on Motion for Discovery: the Hearing on the Order to Show Cause is adjourned to September 10, 2015 at 12:00 noon. Dr. Julianne Imperato-McGinley and her counsel are both required to attend in person. Ordered by Magistrate Judge Viktor V. Pohorelsky on 8/25/2015. . . .

The delay from September 2 — to September 10 — was designed to accommodate the doctor’s availabilty — to appear in person. Pop the popcorn folks! [And, in answer to Mr. E (below), there was no status hearing scheduled for today, given yesterdaty’s developments — it was superceded/deleted.] Onward.
