(PRWEB) May 08, 2013
A federal judge recently issued an order postponing the second federal DePuy ASR bellwether trial from July to September, according to court documents. The Rottenstein Law Group, which offers information about the ASR hip implant and provides news updates on the product at http://www.depuyrecallnewscenter.com/lawsuits, offers insight into what this means for those looking to file DePuy lawsuits.
Judge David Katz issued the order on April 22, three days after the first ASR bellwether trial was pushed back from May to June, according to court documents in MDL-2197, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.
“Delays can happen,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group. “This does not mean that those who seek to file hip implant lawsuits should be concerned about retaining an attorney for alleged harms such as metal poisoning, pain and discomfort. Every victim can have his or her day in court if he or she wants it."
There are an additional 11,000 lawsuits pending against DePuy over the ASR across the nation in state and federal courts, according to Bloomberg.* DePuy voluntarily recalled the ASR in August 2010. The first hip trial in Los Angeles resulted in the plaintiff winning an $8.3 million damages award (Kransky v. DePuy; BC456086, Los Angeles Superior Court).
