Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes New Plaintiff Filing in Federal Ethicon Vaginal Mesh Litigation

New York, New York (PRWEB) December 06, 2013

Plaintiffs in transvaginal mesh lawsuits ( ) filed against Johnson & Johnson and its Ethicon, Inc. unit have charged in a court filing that Ethicon lost or destroyed certain documents relevant to their cases. According to documents filed with the U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia on December 2nd, plaintiffs assert that Ethicon has acknowledged that the documents, which pertain to the development and regulatory approval of its Gynecare pelvic mesh products, were mishandled. The motion seeks to bar the companies from using certain defenses in bellwether trials that are scheduled to get underway next year in the federal proceeding. (In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2327)

“Our Firm is representing numerous women in Ethicon vaginal mesh lawsuits that have been filed in this litigation, and we will be monitoring this issue very closely,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. Firm partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee for the federal Ethicon litigation. Bernstein Liebhard LLP continues to evaluate legal claims on behalf of women who suffered serious injuries, allegedly due to products marketed by Ethicon and other manufacturers.

Vaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Court documents indicate that Johnson & Johnson and Ethicon are named in more than 12,000 claims filed in the Southern District of West Virginia on behalf of alleged victims of serious vaginal mesh complications. The companies are also facing more than 4,000 similar transvaginal mesh lawsuits pending in a consolidated proceeding underway in New Jersey’s Atlantic County Superior Court, where the first trial ended in March with an award of $11 million to the Plaintiff. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in this proceeding, and was also a member of that trial team. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10)

The federal Ethicon vaginal mesh litigation is one of several currently underway in the Southern District of West Virginia. Mr. Grand is also serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees for three other federal vaginal mesh proceedings, including: American Medical Systems, Inc. (MDL No. 2325); Boston Scientific Corp., (MDL No. 2326); and C.R. Bard, Inc., (MDL No. 2187). He was also named Co-Liaison Counsel in a second litigation underway in Atlantic County Superior Court for lawsuits involving C.R. Bard products. (In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10)
