Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Report of Texas Probe into Ethicon Pelvic Mesh Marketing
Date:7/11/2014

VjbTM5NTE5Mi5odG0=" class="trackingLink" rel="nofollow" trackingLink="http://www.fda.gov/newsevents/newsroom/pressannouncements/ucm395192.htm" >U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has been reviewing the safety of transvaginal mesh since October 2008, when it first alerted the public to the serious risk of transvaginal mesh complications associated with these products. In April, the agency proposed new regulations that, if finalized, would reclassify mesh used to treat pelvic organ prolapse as high-risk medical devices, and subject the products to greater regulatory scrutiny.

Court documents indicate that more than 19,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed against Ethicon and Johnson & Johnson in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia. Jeffrey S. Grand, a partner with Bernstein Liebhard LLP, is serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee for this proceeding. (In re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2327)

In addition to his work on the federal litigation, Mr. Grand is serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in a consolidated proceeding established for Ethicon mesh lawsuits in New Jersey’s Atlantic County Superior Court, where more than 5,580 claims have been filed. Mr. Grand was a member of the Plaintiff’s trial team for its first trial. That case ended in March 2013 with a jury awarding $11 million in compensatory and punitive damages to a woman who suffered vaginal mesh complications related to the Ethicon Gynecare Prolift device. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10).

Mr. Grand is also a member of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in a number of other transvaginal mesh litigations underway in the Southern District of West Virginia, including those involving American Medical Systems, Inc. (MDL No. 2325); Boston Scientific Corp., (MDL No. 2326); and C.R. Bard, Inc., (MDL No. 2187). He was also appointed Co
