New York, New York (PRWEB) October 05, 2014
Transvaginal mesh lawsuits (http://www.drugbot.com/transvaginal-mesh/lawsuit/) filed against Boston Scientific Corp. continue to move forward in the federal multidistrict litigation now underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents dated September 29th, U.S. District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin has issued a number of rulings pertaining to one of the litigation’s bellwether cases. Among other things, he has ruled that expert witnesses testifying for plaintiffs will be permitted to discuss their opinions that the company’s polypropylene mid-urethral slings are defective. Judge Goodwin also granted a plaintiffs’ motion to exclude testimony by one of Boston Scientific’s expert witnesses regarding the company’s regulatory activities. (Sanchez v. Boston Scientific Corp., No. 2:12-5762)

The Firm continues to offer free legal reviews to women who suffered mesh erosion, pain, scarring, infection and other serious transvaginal mesh complications, allegedly due to products marketed by a number of manufacturers.

Grand, is serving as a member of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee.
