Progress in meningitis investigation

Prosecutors not ready to charge

Federal and state prosecutors said Monday they are making progress in their investigation of last year’s deadly fungal meningitis outbreak traced to a defunct Massachusetts specialty pharmacy, but are not ready to bring criminal charges.

“We are moving forward, but it is a very complex, wide-ranging investigation,” said Carmen Ortiz, the US attorney for Massachusetts at a press conference in Detroit with Attorney General Bill Schuette of Michigan. The prosecutors announced that they will begin coordinating their separate investigations.
