Higbee, Superior Court of New Jersey, Atlantic County. This litigation involves the claims of hundreds of women throughout the country whose alleged injuries as a result of these transvaginal mesh and bladder sling devices include erosion, infection, pain, urinary problems, bleeding, vaginal scarring or shrinkage, pain during sexual intercourse, and recurrence of urinary problems or pelvic organ prolapse. As Co-Liaison Counsel, Ms. Roman shall serve as a liaison between the Court, defense counsel and all Plaintiffs’ counsel.
