NELSON v. SANDOZ PHARM. CORP., 00-4062, 01-1824

Although Indiana's statute of limitations and discovery rule govern plaintiffs' claims originally brought in New Jersey, the district court inappropriately entered summary judgment for defendant based on the statute of limitations defense, where plaintiffs were not alerted to a reasonable possibility or probability that drug manufactured by the defendant may have induced plaintiff's stroke, thus triggering the statute of limitations period, prior to 1994.
