Unbelievably Awesome MDL Action
The new scheduling order is up! [PDF] Whoo-hoo!
Too much enthusiasm for an MDL hearing, in the not-particularly-exotic locale of Kansas City? Okay, you're probably right. Still, some torty goodness is promised in the matters up for argument. Plus, a new feature, where I check the number of ads for lawyers for the various proposed MDLs.
- Regeneration Technologies lawsuit: Evidently some not-authorized-for-human-use tissue was used; it hadn't been properly tested for various diseases. Oops. Google AdSense plaintiffs' firm ad count: 2.
- Toyota Sienna AWD Tire Products Liability Litigation: Not sure what this is other than what one can infer from the name of the case. I have a non-AWD Sienna and don't believe I've gotten a recall notice, but that doesn't mean much. Google AdSense plaintiffs' firm ad count: 0. (Lots of offers to sell you tires, though.)
- Seroquel Products Liability Litigation: Anti-psychotic drug tied to Type II diabetes. Google AdSense plaintiffs' firm ad count: 5. (But Schmidt and Clark, your ad results in a 404 error.)
- "A Million Little Pieces" Litigation: Ah, the good ol' days. (All the way back in February.) Google AdSense plaintiffs' firm ad count: 0. What, nobody wants to spend the money to get some more clients? So sad...
- Greek air crash 8/2005: Self-explanatory. No Google ads.
For context, the maximum number of Google AdSense listings appears to be ten, though of course there can be more advertisers than that cycling through the listings. See this earlier entry for a bit more on lawyers and Google ads, as well as links to other sites discussing the same.
