In the Zyprexa MDL, Judge Jack Weinstein has just issued his order certifying a class of third party payors — insurance companies and the like — who allegedly overpaid for prescriptions of Zyprexa.

Judge Weinstein declined to certify a class of individuals who bought Zyprexa.

The case is In re Zyprexa Products Liability Litigation, 04-MD-1596, slip op. (E.D.N.Y. Sept. 5, 2008).

The opinion is nearly 300 pages long. We have it in our hands, but haven’t yet read it. Here’s a link to the decision.
