LANSING — A Livingston County judge this week rejected pleas from two men accused in a deadly 2012 fungal meningitis outbreak that killed 11 people, clearing the way for their cases to go to trial.

According to a news release from Attorney General Dana Nessel’s office, U.S. District Court Judge Michael P. Hattie denied motions by Barry Cadden, 56, and Glen Chin, 54, seeking details of the settlement of the claims against them.

In addition, Cadden filed a motion seeking discovery of computer evidence seized by law enforcement after executing federal search warrants at the New England Compounding Company, which he owned. Hattie also denied that motion.

The two men will stand trial after the Michigan Supreme Court sent their cases back to Livingston County District Court. Kaden and Chin are charged with 11 counts of second-degree murder.
