DrugNews: Federal Court Moves Growing Mirena Lawsuits Forward
Date:9/12/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 12, 2013

The birth control safety center at DrugNews.net is advising women using the Mirena IUD of updated information on the site. Amid a rise in the number of lawsuits alleging the devices caused perforation injuries, a federal court recently entered an order to begin selection of cases for trial*.

Court records show the number of cases filed has increased over 17% in the past month, from 105 on July 10 to 123 on August 15th*****.

Now, Judge Seibel, who is overseeing the federal litigation, has ordered that parties select the initial pool of bellwether trial cases by April 4, 2014*. These test cases can give the parties a sample of jury reaction and set the tone for settlement negotiations.

Anyone who suffered perforation or required surgery while using a Mirena IUD is urged to spe
