Meningitis outbreak lawsuit

Posted: Updated:

You could guess this was coming, which is the first lawsuit over the fungal meningitis outbreak. A woman in Minnesota filed the first one saying she had meningitis symptoms after receiving what she says was one of the tainted steroid injections. So far, there have been 185 confirmed cases and 14 deaths. While most of the outbreak is in Tennessee, 11 other states are involved.  For the first time now, one case has been confirmed in Texas with the contaminated injection coming from a pain center in Dallas.
