DePuy ASR™ MDL Lawsuit Update: Settlement Reached in the DePuy ASR™ Hip Implant Multidistrict Litigation (MDL 2197)
Date:11/28/2013

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) November 28, 2013

According to court documents filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio in the Multidistrict Litigation In re: DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., ASR™ Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, MDL 2197 (Case No. 10-md-2197), the settlement agreement has now been released.

The deadline for plaintiffs to register to participate in the settlement is January 6, 2014 and all necessary enrollment documents must be submitted by April 1, 2014.

If there is sufficient participation in the settlement, then it will proceed with payments made under the settlement agreement in the summer of 2014.
