Compounding Center Blamed for Meningitis Outbreak Declared Insolvent

The New England Compounding Center, which has been blamed for the deaths of 15 patients treated in Tennessee, has been declared insolvent by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Henry J. Boroff. Judge Boroff granted the request by the Nashville attorney representing a McMinnville man whose wife died in last year's fungal meningitis outbreak. With the declaration of the center’s insolvency, the widower can file suit in Tennessee under the provisions of the state product liability statute. WBIR has the story.
