All of the Stryker Rejuvenate lawsuits pending in Bergen County Superior Court allege personal injuries due to failure of the Rejuvenate and ABG II hip stems. According to court records, the metal hip stems were recalled in July 2012 for fretting and/or corrosion at or about the modular-neck junction, which may result in adverse local tissue reactions manifesting with pain and/or swelling." Plaintiffs are alleged to have suffered a variety of complications, including metallosis, necrosis and osteolysis.
According to a Court Order issued on April 2nd, Judge Brian R. Martinotti, who is overseeing the Stryker hip implant lawsuits in New Jersey, has determined that a mediation process could resolve some claims pending in the litigation. Thus far, the parties have agreed to select a panel consisting of up to six third-party mediators, four of whom have already been chosen. The Order noted, however, that the ongoing mediation of the Stryker Rejuvenate hip lawsuits won’t affect the case management of the litigation, including discovery deadlines.
Meanwhile, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) heard Oral Arguments on May 30th regarding the possible consolidation of Stryker hip replacement recall lawsuits filed in federal courts throughout the country. A decision is expected soon. (In Re: Stryker Rejuvenate and ABG II Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, Case Pending No. 20 (JPML))
