The Fen Phen Settlement
that became final on January 11, 2002 has a claim deadline
of August 2002.
Fen Phen, American Home Products has agreed to a global
settlement of claims and has created a settlement fund
in order to resolve the large number of claims due to
the Primary Pulmonary Hypertension the diet drug causes.
Although the amount of money that American Home Products
has agreed to has been increased due to the increasing
amount of people that have been diagnosed with heart disease
complications, the ability to opt-out of the class action
can allow individuals to a greater sum of money.
