Ruling delayed on meningitis firm assets

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said 34 people have died and 490 have been injured after Framingham, Mass.-based NECC shipped thousands of fungus-tainted vials of methylprednisolone acetate to medical facilities throughout the United States. The steroid was typically used to ease back pain.
