Aimee Wagstaff, a partner at Denver-based Wagstaff Law Firm, was appointed by U.S. District Judge Jacqueline Scott Corley as national co-lead counsel in the federal multidistrict litigation involving toxic baby foods. She is joined by Brent Wisner of Wisner Baum as co-lead counsel, according to a June 10 announcement from Wagstaff Law.

The MDL consolidates federal lawsuits filed across the country that allege serious injuries and damages to children after they consumed baby food products with dangerous levels of heavy metals, according to the announcement. The cases were centralized in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California under the jurisdiction of Corley.

“Aimee brings a wealth of experience and a proven track record of success in handling complex product liability cases,” said Wagstaff Law CEO Jonathan Weisz in a news release. “Her dedication to seeking justice for those harmed by toxic baby foods and expertise in product liability law will be invaluable in navigating the challenges of this MDL.”

In her role as co-lead counsel, the firm noted Wagstaff will work closely with the plaintiffs’ steering committee to help build a strong case during pretrial proceedings. 

“As a mom of two young children, this litigation is very important to me. I understand the significance of this case and the responsibility that comes with my appointment,” said Wagstaff in a news release. “I am dedicated to achieving justice and fair compensation for those who have suffered due to defective and harmful baby food products.”

Joining Wagstaff as a member of the PSC is Wagstaff Law associate attorney Madeleine Clavier. The firm noted this is Clavier’s first appointment to a steering committee.
