Family of Indiana man who died of fungal meningitis sues pharmacy that made tainted steroid

INDIANAPOLIS — The family of a northern Indiana man who died from fungal meningitis is suing a Massachusetts specialty pharmacy that produced tainted medication linked to a deadly outbreak.

The wrongful death lawsuit was filed this week in an Elkhart County court.

Sixty-eight-year-old Daniel Rohrer of Bristol died Oct. 23 at an Elkhart hospital. Attorney Richard Crowder says Rohrer’s death was the third in Indiana attributed to the widespread fungal meningitis outbreak that’s claimed 29 lives.

The family’s complaint accuses the New England Compounding Center of Framingham, Mass., of negligence and says the pharmacy should have known the tainted steroid was harmful.

Elkhart County’s health officer has said all three of Indiana’s fungal meningitis deaths are linked to Elkhart County, which is east of South Bend and borders Michigan.
