Birth Control Lawsuit could cost Bayer AG $2.75 Billion

Over the past five months Bayer AG, the makers of the birth control pills Yasmin, Yaz or Ocella, have settled about 651 U.S. lawsuites for $142 Million.  With an average of $218,000 per case Bayer AG could stand to lose over $2.75 Billion in settlements.  Don't feel bad for Bayer AG...that translates to only two years in profits.

The lawsuits against the makers of Yasmin, Yaz, Ocella allege that Bayer AG knew of the dangers associated with the drugs but marketed them as safe anyway.
