A C.R. Bard transvaginal mesh bellwether trial is nearing the completion of its first week in federal court in West Virginia with a series of expert witnesses called by plaintiffs Dan and Donna Cisson, who sued Bard over its Avaulta mesh, reports the Rottenstein Law Group LLP, a law firm with attorneys who are helping to answer vaginal mesh class action questions from women who allege they have suffered from the medical device.
On Aug. 2 Dr. Jim Ross of the Center for Female Continence and Urogynecologic Surgery testified, according to court documents in Cisson v. C. R. Bard, Inc. (MDL-2187; 2:11-cv-00195; U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia). Ross had a key role in the development of the Avaulta vaginal mesh. Next was Anthony Brennan, a professor of material science and engineering at the University of Florida. Final deposition testimony came from Douglas Evans, a project leader at Bard.
Recent Bard vaginal mesh awards include a 2012 verdict in California that resulted in a $5.5 million damages award.*
