Fifteen Additional Levaquin Lawsuits Filed in Illinois
The manufacturers of a potent antibiotic known as Levaquin are facing additional litigation. the companies involved in the production and distribution, Johnson and Johnson, Ortho-McNeil Pharmaceutical, Johnson and Johnson Pharmaceutical Research and Development and Walgreens, have all been named as defendants in what is rapidly shaping up to be one of the larger pharmaceutical class action lawsuits in the past decade. In an effort to concentrate all pending suits into a single judgment, a motion was recently filed to consolidate all pending litigation against the companies into a larger class action lawsuit. There have been several separate cases filed across the United States by prominent personal injury attorneys, however, these cases are not isolated to the US. Internationally, medical practitioners and safety groups have questioned the efficacy of Levaquin and the connection to potentially serious tendon rupture.
Fifteen additional lawsuits were filed on September 2, 2009, by residents of Illinois, alleging severe tendon problems. All cases further state that while taking Levaquin, they were unaware of the serious risk of tendon injuries, including rupture, and as a result suffered serious and lasting tendon injuries. These claims are almost identical to other lawsuits filed against Johnson and Johnson et al., with essentially the same allegations. In fact, litigation regarding Levaquin is nothing new for the companies, though the scope of this most recent surge may be a unique experience for them.
When Levaquin was introduced, the risk of tendon rupture was buried in a long list of many potential side effects. However, the risk was seemingly downplayed among a litany of other potential side effects. Yet, the risk of serious and debilitating tendon injuries while taking Levaquin was significantly higher for the average patient and nearly triple that of other antibiotics in the fluoroquinolone family in people over 60. In what appears to be one of the more potentially damaging pieces of evidence, Levaquin was touted as having an excellent safety rating and as being one of the safest antibiotics on the market. This appears to be a deliberate and intentional cover-up of an extremely serious health concern.
Though Levaquin has been under intense scrutiny lately, this is also nothing new. Since 2001, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been issuing increasingly more insistent warnings on the drug, requiring stronger and stronger labeling and mandatory informational packets explaining the risk of serious tendon side effects, such as tendon rupture. In 2008, the FDA finally required that Levaquin carry the black box warning, the most serious warning label the FDA can require a drug to carry. Oftentimes, individuals who have experienced a Levaquin-related tendon rupture are left severly disabled as a result. Many patients are forced to take legal action as their only means of receiving monetary compensation to cover the costly medical treatments and rehabilitation.
The Korean Zodiac
Visitors to Korea might be surprised to hear Koreans referring to 2010 as ‘the year of the tiger’. Koreans believe that there are twelve gods of the earth (Sibiji or twelve jisins) who take the form of twelve animals: the mouse, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, chicken, dog, and pig.
Before the arrival of the Western concept of time keeping, Koreans measured time according to the names of animals, for example myosi (the time of the rabbit) was between 5:00 and 7:00, and misi (the time of the sheep) was between 13:00 and 15:00. The whole day was divided into twelve sections, each of which was symbolized by one of the twelve animals. Various tales regarding the origin of these beliefs have been handed down through the generations, and the most common ones are indicated below. These animals were therefore seen as guardians of specific times and also of specific directions such as north or southwest. They were believed to be guardians against evil spirits, and can be seen surrounding royal tombs.
Koreans also determined the years by assigning them to the twelve animals. According to this system 2010 is ‘the year of the tiger’, and 2011 will be ‘the year of the rabbit’. It is traditionally believed that people possess the certain characteristics of the animal whose year they were born in. Therefore the year and also the time at which you were born were believed to determine your personality and fate.

Chuksi (01:00-03:00): The cow ruminates its cud and prepares for the next morning’s work in the field.

Sinsi (15:00-17:00) : The monkey cries the most at this time.
Yusi (17:00-19:00) : After a whole day of searching for food, the chicken finally goes to its nest.
