AstraZeneca wins judgment in Seroquel lawsuit

May 26, 2009 1:07:06 PM PDT
A Delaware judge has ruled in favor of drugmaker AstraZeneca in a lawsuit claiming that the company's anti-psychotic drug Seroquel causes diabetes. In a one-paragraph ruling issued Tuesday, Judge Joseph Slights III in Wilmington granted the company's request to exclude testimony from a medical expert for a Kansas woman who claimed that Seroquel caused her to develop diabetes.

Slights said that in the absence of competent expert testimony, he determined that the court must grant summary judgment to AstraZeneca in the case.

The case had been scheduled to go to trial in late June.
