“Case management conferences provide the parties and the Court an opportunity to address the status of discovery and other matters that affect the progress of the litigation.

The Firm continues to offer free legal consultations to alleged victims of serious vaginal mesh complications.
Transvaginal Mesh Litigation
According to court documents more than 9,600 transvaginal mesh lawsuits are currently pending in the two multicounty litigations now underway in Bergen County Superior Court. This includes 1,766 cases filed in the C.R. Bard proceeding, and more than 7,853 claims included in the litigation involving Ethicon. All of the lawsuits similarly allege that the companies’ surgical mesh devices used to treat pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence were defectively designed and manufactured, and put women at risk for mesh erosion, chronic pain, organ damage and other debilitating vaginal mesh complications. Plaintiffs further allege that the pelvic mesh implants were not subjected to adequate testing to ensure their safety and effectiveness, and that C.R. Bard and Ethicon failed to provide patients and the medical community with sufficient warning regarding their risks.
Bernstein Liebhard LLP is also representing vaginal mesh lawsuit plaintiffs in a number of multidistrict litigations now underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia. Court documents indicate that more than 75,000 cases are pending in these proceedings, including: In Re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2325; In Re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2326; In Re: Coloplast Corp.
