Bartlit Beck Turns Tide of HIV Claims by Winning Sample Trials

Alpha Therapeutic Blood Factor Concentrate Litigation (1999)

Phil Beck, Lin Brenza and Adam Hoeflich defended Alpha in a nation-wide series of lawsuits involving claims of AIDS transmission to hemophiliacs through blood factor concentrate marketed by Alpha and other fractionators and used by hemophiliacs to control bleeding.  Their work culminated in the successful defense of Alpha in a 4 month trial in Louisiana brought by the family of a deceased hemophiliac.
