A Quebec Superior Court judge has authorized a class-action lawsuit against Pfizer Canada Inc. and Pfizer Inc. over its birth control drug Depo-Provera.

Montreal-based law firm Belleau Lapointe said Friday that the suit represents people claiming to have suffered a loss of bone mineral density from using the drug.

The suit alleges the company failed to fulfil certain obligations by misrepresenting the risks associated with the use of the long-lasting contraceptive.
