Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits Move Forward in Federal Litigations with Issuance of New Case Management Order, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:7/22/2013

t documents indicate that tens of thousands of transvaginal mesh lawsuits have been file in courts throughout the country since 2011, when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a public health alert stating there had been a five-fold increase in transvaginal mesh problems reported to the agency. In the warning, the FDA also re-classified the frequency of injuries stemming from the use of mesh in pelvic organ prolapse repair as “not rare,” which was a change from the position it had taken in October 2008.*

Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey Grand is also serving as Co-Liaison Counsel in both of these litigations. In March, the nation’s first trial involving an Ethicon mesh product concluded in New Jersey state court, with the jury awarding more than $11 million in compensatory and punitive damages to the Plaintiff. Mr. Grand also served on the Plaintiff’s trial team. (Gross v. Gynecare Inc., Atl-L-6966-10, Superior Court of Atlantic County, New Jersey (Atlantic City))

While none of the companies involved in these litigations have issued a mesh recall recently, Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon unit did announce last summer that it would stop selling several of its Gynecare mesh products. However, the company said safety concerns did not play a role in its decision, and did not characterize the move as a recall.**
