: Does any one have any information on the class action law suit against the makers of synthroid,
: I would appreciate any information that you have.

Hi Renee,

Glad you brought this up here! I hope everyone will go look at the information on the lawsuit even if the claim period is closed. This is from Mary Shomon's newsletter back in April. Sorry, but it's the last thing I've hear about it.
But it has links that should provide the lastest updates.

SYNTHROID SUIT ALMOST FINALIZED, BUT DON'T LOOK FOR MONEY TILL LATE 2000
OR 2001

On April 27, 2000, the hearing on "Final Approval" of the Synthroid
class action lawsuit settlement was held as scheduled before the Judge
Elaine Bucklo. Judge Bucklo has not yet issued a ruling granting final
approval of the proposed settlement. Until final approval is granted
there can be no disbursement of funds to class members who have filed
valid claims. The claim period remains closed. If you previously
submitted a claim form, you don't need to do anything other than
updating your address if necessary. See http://www.synthroidclaims.com
According to the lawyers, who I talked to in early May, if the approval
is given (and there's no reason to think that it won't be), the
absolute earliest people could expect to receive their payment if they
are part of the suit is the end of 2000. You can find out history and
background on the lawsuit at my article at

Hope this helps, Tina
