Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit News: C.R. Bard Motion to Exclude Certain Evidence Denied in Federal Bellwether Trial, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports
Date:1/7/2014

New York, New York (PRWEB) January 07, 2014

The federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia, for vaginal mesh lawsuits (http://www.transvaginalmeshlawsuitclaims.com/) filed against C.R. Bard, Inc. continues to prepare for the litigation’s second bellwether trial, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to court documents issued January 3, 2014, the judge overseeing the proceeding has denied C.R. Bard’s motion in limine to exclude certain evidence relating to the company’s pelvic mesh devices. (Jones v. C. R. Bard, Inc. 2:11-cv-00114)

“We are following this bellwether case closely, as we are representing numerous women in transvaginal mesh lawsuits that have been filed in this proceeding. The finding of the jury in this case could provide clues as to how other juries might rule in similar claims pending against C.R. Bard,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. Firm partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is a member of the Plaintiffs' Steering Committee in the federal C.R. Bard litigation. Bernstein Liebhard LLP continues to offer free legal evaluations to women who allegedly suffered mesh erosion, chronic pain, infections, and other complications following implantation of devices manufactured by C.R. Bard, Inc., as well as American Medical Systems, Inc., Ethicon, Inc. and Boston Scientific Corp.

Transvaginal Mesh Lawsuits
Court documents indicate that more than 6,200 vaginal mesh lawsuits have been filed against C.R. Bard in the Southern District of West Virginia. All of the claims pending in the proceeding allege that the company’s Avaulta pelvic mesh products were defectively designed and manufactured. Plaintiffs further allege that C.R. Bard failed to provide adequate warnings to doctors and patients about their risks. (In re C.R. Bard Inc. Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2187)

The second federal bellwether trial in the C.R. Bard litigation is scheduled to begin Friday, January 10, 2014. According to court documents, the first bellwether case concluded in August, with the jury awarding $2 billion in damages to Plaintiff. (Cisson v. C.R. Bard Inc., 11-cv-00195)

According to court documents, C.R. Bard was ordered to pay $3.6 million of a $.5.5 million judgment rendered by a California Superior Court jury in July 2012, after the panel found that the company was partly liable for the complications suffered by another Avaulta mesh recipient. The surgeon who implanted the device was assessed the remaining portion of the judgment. (Scott v. Kannappan, S-1500-CV-266034-WDE, Superior Court for Kern County, California (Bakersfield))

Along with the federal multidistrict litigation for claims involving C.R. Bard, court filings indicate that five other consolidated proceedings involving vaginal mesh lawsuits have been established for claims naming other manufacturers as defendants. Bernstein Liebhard LLP partner, Jeffrey S. Grand, is also serving on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committees for the following federal litigations: In re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2325; In re: Boston Scientific Corp., Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2326; and In re: Ethicon, Inc. Pelvic Repair Systems Products Liability Litigation - MDL No. 2327.

Mr. Grand was also named Co-Liaison Counsel in two consolidated proceedings established for C.R. Bard and Ethicon mesh lawsuits in New Jersey’s Atlantic Superior Court. He was also a member of the trial team on the first Ethicon trial, which ended in March with an $11 million verdict for the Plaintiff. (In re: Pelvic Mesh/Gynecare Litigation, No. 6341-10; In re: Pelvic Mesh Litigation/Bard, No. L-6339-10).
