See 802 F.Supp.2d 1374 (J.P.M.L. 2011). Since that time, 812 additional action(s) have been transferred to the Northern District of Illinois.

This order does not become effective until it is filed in the Office of the Clerk of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. The transmittal of this order to said Clerk shall be stayed 7 days from the entry thereof. If any party files a notice of opposition with the Clerk of the Panel within this 7−day period, the stay will be continued until further order of the Panel.
