San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 18, 2013
Resource4thePeople, in its latest update to consumers following the progress of lawsuits over Medtronic Infuse bone graft allegations, is reporting that a federal judge has issued a ruling that rejected Medtronic's attempts to dismiss the litigation.
The ruling by Arizona federal Judge G. Murray Snow involving Medtronic Infuse bone graft lawsuits before him* is the latest in a series of conflicting rulings affecting lawsuits claiming that the bone grafts were marketed for off-label uses not approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
Judge Snow ruled against arguments by Medtronic lawyers that a federal law involving lawsuits over FDA-approved devices shields the company from damages in such litigation.
"This is the latest ruling involving hundreds of Medtronic Infuse lawsuits alleging that plaintiffs are entitled to seek compensation for serious side effects that they may have suffered as a result of these devices," said Resource4thePeople.
"At issue was whether the federal law preempts the rights of these alleged victims to press state tort claims and the judge has ruled that it doesn't, which is a very important ruling."
Resource4thePeople announced after the ruling that it will continue to offer free consultations through its nationwide network of attorneys to consumers seeking information about their legal options over allegations of serious health problems as a result of Medtronic Infuse bone grafts.
“The fact of the matter is that although contradictory rulings have been made by judges in different jurisdictions these rulings do not affect the rights of consumers to continue to seek information
