Litigation Over Rejuvenate® Hip Implants to Be Conducted in Michigan State Court, Not Minnesota Federal Court
Date:12/4/2013

Southfield, MI (PRWEB) December 04, 2013

Michigan plaintiffs claiming to have been injured by a defective hip implant device recently scored a victory when Judge Patrick J. Duggan of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan held that a Michigan state court is the proper venue to oversee their lawsuit. Although the ruling applied to one matter in particular, it will likely impact all subsequent cases filed in state court alleging defects in the Rejuvenate hip prosthesis against Kalamazoo-based Stryker Corporation and its wholly owned subsidiary, Howmedica Osteonics Corporation.

In July, Attorney Robert Sickels of Sommers Schwartz, P.C. filed a complaint in Macomb County Circuit Court (Case Number 2013-001999-NP) on behalf of Arthur Curnow and his wife, alleging that the replacement devices implanted in Mr. Curnow’s left and right hips – devices sold under “The Rejuvenate® System” product name – were defective and that Stryker and Howmedica should be held jointly liable for its negligent design. The lawsuit claims that metal surfaces in each device’s modular neck and stem rubbed against one another, causing metallic debris to shed and destroy the surrounding tissue. Persistent hip pain forced Mr. Curnow to undergo to replace both of the defective devices.

According to court documents, after the complaint was filed Stryker and Howmedica sought to have the case removed to the federal court system from the state system on the basis that Stryker was not a proper party to the action and that Howmedica was solely responsible for the design, manufacture and sale of the product. The Curnows objected, arguing to the federal judge that there were sufficient allegations and evidence of Stryker’s control of Howmedica to justify keeping Stryker in the case and returning it to the state court system.
