The quality of counsel in this case on both sides was outstanding. Every issue was aggressively and very professionally litigated and I put great stock in the fact that each side thinks this is a fair settlement to both sides… I have to consider the complexity of the litigation and this case had my head spinning for the two motions that I decided. These were really hard issues. And finally, the professional, skill and standing of counsel involved in both sides. As far as I’m concerned, these counsel, all of them, are at the top of their profession… Thank you. It was a real privilege to work with you folks on this case. I was just telling my new law clerk that this was one of the hardest cases I’ve had in five years and one of the very best litigated. So thank you very much. I appreciate everybody’s hard work and a sensible resolution of a hard case. Take care. – Hon. Matthew F. Leitman, Kerrigan v. Visalus, Inc.Case No.: 2:14-cv-12693-MFL-DRG E.D. Michigan (November 13, 2019)

I’m surrounded in this courthouse by other judges who have, people that are very experienced in MDL work. . . But I speak for [Hon. Magistrate Judge Teresa J. James] and for me for sure that we’re very excited to be handling this case and very excited to be working with such a fine group of accomplished and experienced lawyers.” – Julie A. Robinson, D.Kan.
