Potentially Interesting MDLs

The next hearing of the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation is coming up next week in sunny Orlando.  Some interesting proposed torts-related MDL matters from the schedule [PDF] for oral argument:

Ephedra (defendants' opposition to transfer of a pile of cases)
Lipitor marketing and sales practices (plaintiffs' motion to centralize)
Teflon (plaintiffs' motion to centralize)
Celexa and Lexapro (defendants' motion to centralize)
Honda Oil Filter (defendants' motion to centralize)
Grand Theft Auto, Second Try (first try was denied, plaintiffs' motion to centralize)
Canon Digital Camera (defendant's motion to centralize)
Ortho Evra (plaintiff's motion to centralize)

A bunch of oppositions to transfer are set for consideration without oral argument.
