Sanofi (France) (SAN.PA)'s Ambien Lawsuit & a Hard Rock Exec's Death



4/5/2012 8:06:23 AM

The company that makes the sleeping pill Ambien wants a federal judge to dismiss the wrongful death lawsuit filed by relatives of Hard Rock Hotel executive Randy Kwasniewski, who committed suicide in March 2010. Instead of filing an answer to the complaint, the manufacturer -- sanofi-aventis U.S. -- filed a motion Tuesday to dismiss it. "To prevail, plaintiffs must establish that Ambien caused Mr. Kwasniewski's death," according to the motion. "However, plaintiffs have failed to plead sufficient facts to plausibly suggest that Mr. Kwasniewski's death was caused by Ambien."
