New York (PRWEB) August 20, 2012
Federal DePuy Pinnacle hip implant lawsuits consolidated for pretrial procedures in a Multidistrict Litigation case in the Northern District of Texas are moving apace, as evidenced by a new scheduling order. By Case Management Order No. 7, issued by United States District Judge Ed Kinkeade on August 14, 2012, in case number 3:11-MD-2244-K, numerous milestones were established.
Among the deadlines set are several that are likely to be of general interest: A list of requested persons to be examined at deposition is to be provided by the plaintiffs’ counsel by October 29, 2012. By December 31, the defendants must advise the court that all relevant documents responsive to the plaintiffs’ requests have been produced. And by September 2, 2013, the parties must recommend to the court 4-6 cases to be tried as bellwethers.
The first bellwether case is to be ready for trial by September 4, 2014.
