Rockville Centre, NY (PRWEB) June 27, 2014
The Rottenstein Law Group LLP is a New York-based personal injury law firm representing plaintiffs nationwide in lawsuits filed against Ethicon, the manufacturer of GYNECARE PROLIFT vaginal mesh devices, which have allegedly caused serious injuries to women who were implanted with the devices as treatments for pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). The firm is paying close attention to the latest developments in the Ethicon multidisitrict litigation (In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2327) as they pertain to upcoming bellwether trials.
The Ethicon MDL has consolidated approximately 19,000 lawsuits filed by victims alleging injuries caused by the company’s products. The most recent Pretrial Order issued by Judge Joseph R.Goodwin, who is presiding over the cases in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia, states that a pretrial conference will be taking place on August 7, with the first trial in next round of bellwethers scheduled to begin on August 25.
“We are keeping a close eye on the Ethicon proceedings because we are representing a sizeable group of Ethicon plaintiffs that are awaiting their day in court,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group. “The outcomes of these bellwether trials are an important factor in determining how juries will decide future cases.”
