Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
As of August 5th, court records indicate that at least 4,390 mesh lawsuits had been filed against Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon unit in the New Jersey litigation. Another 810 are pending in the C.R. Bard proceeding. All of the lawsuits filed in Atlantic County Superior Court allege that pelvic mesh products manufactured by the Defendants for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse caused women to suffer serious, life-altering complications. The lawsuits further allege that the manufacturers of these products failed to provide patients and doctors with adequate warnings regarding their risks. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, has been named Co-Liaison Counsel in both litigations, and was a member of the trial team for the first Ethicon trial that concluded in March with an $11 million verdict for the plaintiff. (Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Atl-L-6966-10, Superior Court of Atlantic County, New Jersey)
According to court records, an additional 20,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits are pending in several federal multidistrict litigations now underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia. In addition to his work on the New Jersey state proceedings, Mr. Grand is serving on the Plaintiffs Steering Committee in four federal mesh litigations, including: In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation (“MDL No. 2326); In Re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation (“MDL No. 2325”); In re: C.R.
