DePuy ASR Lawsuit Update: Rottenstein Law Group Addresses J&J Motion to Appeal $8.3 Million Verdict
Date:4/30/2013

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 30, 2013

Following a Los Angeles jury’s award of $8.3 million to plaintiff Loren Kransky in a DePuy ASR lawsuit, manufacturer Johnson & Johnson has asked the Los Angeles Superior Court to put the award on hold while it files an appeal, according to court documents. The Rottenstein Law Group urges those looking to file a DePuy ASR lawsuit to not get discouraged by this news.

“Whenever a court awards millions of dollars to a plaintiff, an appeal by the defendant follows almost as a matter of course—the costs of appealing are small compared to the judgment amount, so the defendant has relatively little to lose by challenging the trial court judgment in an appellate court,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group. “But an appeal is often a difficult thing to win, and the simple fact of the appeal should not be discouraging to anyone considering legal action against the maker of a drug or medical product that caused harm. If the facts show that the product hurt the victim, and the law provides for holding the manufacturer accountable for that harm, then there is little to fear from an appeal of a verdict for the victim."

The initial damages award ruling came in March of this year in the nation’s first DePuy ASR trial (Kransky v. DePuy; BC456086, Los Angeles Superior Court). There are an additional 11,000 lawsuits pending against DePuy over the ASR across the nation in state and federal courts, according to Bloomberg, on April 15, 2013.* Analysts have said the lawsuits could cost Johnson & Johnson billions of dollars. DePuy voluntarily recalled the ASR in August 2010. The first trials in the federal multidistrict litigation (MDL-2197, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio) are set to begin later this year.
