Dial Complete Lawsuits Consolidated

The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation has ruled that all Dial Complete lawsuits will be consolidated to the District of New Hampshire and assigned to Judge Steven J. McAuliffe.

The Panel agreed that all actions involve common factual questions arising from the marketing and sale of Dial Complete Foaming Antibacterial Handwash (Dial Complete).

Plaintiffs in the actions allege that Dial made unsubstantiated health claims in its promotion of Dial Compete to consumers and further allege that triclosan, the active antibacterial ingredient in Dial Complete, may lead to bacterial resistance.

Plaintiffs in all actions purport to represent putative statewide classes of purchasers of Dial Complete, and plaintiffs in two of the actions also seek to represent putative nationwide classes of purchasers.

Consolidation of the Dial Complete lawsuits will eliminate duplicative discovery, and prevent inconsistent pretrial rulings, particularly with respect to class certification.

The ruling also said that centralization in the District of New Hampshire permits the Panel to assign the litigation to a district in which no other multidistrict litigation is pending and to an experienced judge who is willing and able to accept the assignment.
