The federal court overseeing thousands of vaginal mesh lawsuits (http://www.transvaginalmeshlawsuithelp.com/) filed against Boston Scientific, Inc. has issued a new order governing discovery, motions practice and other matters pertaining to 11 consolidated cases scheduled to go to trial this October, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to the March 28th Order, the Court has scheduled the proceeding’s Pretrial and Settlement Conference for October 2, 2014. Proposed jury instructions must be filed with the Court by October 10th, with the trial to commence on October 14, 2014. (In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2326)
“Our Firm is representing numerous women who have filed transvaginal mesh lawsuits in this litigation. We will be watching this trial very closely, as it may provide important insight into how juries might decide similar cases,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm continues to offer free legal reviews to women who suffered mesh erosion, pain, scarring, infection and other serious vaginal mesh complications, allegedly due to products marketed by a number of manufacturers.
Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
According to court documents, more than 11,000 claims have been filed in the Southern District of West Virginia on behalf of women who allegedly suffered serious vaginal mesh complications due to products manufactured by Boston Scientific. All of the cases consolidated for the October trial claim that the company’s Obtryx sling was defectively designed and manufactured, putting recipients at risk for serious and debilitating injuries. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee for the proceeding.
In addition to his work on the federal Boston Scientific litigation, Mr. Grand is also serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees in several other multidistrict litigations established for transvaginal mesh lawsuits in the Southern District of West Virginia. These include proceedings involving American Medical Systems, Inc. (MDL No. 2325), C.R. Bard, Inc. (MDL 2326) and Ethicon, Inc. (MDL No. 2327).
Mr. Grand was also appointed Co-Liaison Counsel in two consolidated proceedings established for C.R. Bard and Ethicon mesh lawsuits in New Jersey’s Atlantic Superior Court. He was also a member of the trial team on the first Ethicon trial, which ended in March with an $11 million verdict for the Plaintiff. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10; In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10).
Alleged victims of severe vaginal mesh complications may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer of their device.
