In order for the plaintiffs to receive a fair trial, all the relevant evidence must be available.
(PRWEB) May 22, 2013
Pretrial proceedings for federal DePuy Pinnacle lawsuits are progressing. On May 15 a judge for the Pinnacle multidistrict litigation ordered Johnson & Johnson’s DePuy Orthopaedics unit to produce monitoring reports related to a federal investigation into the company’s medical device sales practices, according to court documents. The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, a DePuy Pinnacle law firm, maintains http://www.pinnaclelawsuit.com, which has more information on the metal-on-metal hip implant and how to file a lawsuit if appropriate.
Plaintiffs’ lawyers filed the motion to compel the release of the monitoring reports for use in the lawsuits pending in federal courts, according to court documents (In re: DePuy Orthopaedics Inc. Pinnacle Hip Implant Product Liability Litigation; MDL-2244, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas). A 2007 agreement and the monitoring reports were the result of a U.S. Attorney’s office’s criminal investigation into allegations that DePuy offered kickbacks to surgeons to use its hip replacement products.
“In order for the plaintiffs to receive a fair trial, all the relevant evidence must be available,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP.
