Santa Ana, California, Superior Court Judge Jonathan Cannon has ordered the consolidation of all lawsuits pending against the Regents of the University of California arising over the University of California at Irvine's (UCI) liver transplant program.
The Greene Broillet & Wheeler law firm said 10 wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits would be consolidated with other similar cases and will be controlled by Cannon. The judge also ruled that the plaintiffs may begin deposing the defendants in 46 days.
“We want to get to the bottom of why UCI's liver transplant program failed to adhere to its own mandate,“ said Mark Quiqley, who works for Greene Broillet & Wheeler, “and we intend to be aggressive in deposing all responsible parties to uncover the truth. It is our ultimate goal to hold UCI accountable for the clear harm and grief that it has caused our clients.“
