Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit Update: Judge Denies Summary Judgment Motion Associated With Plaintiff’s Punitive Damage Claim, Rottenstein Law Group LLP Reports

(PRWEB) June 10, 2013

The Rottenstein Law Group LLP, which accepts clients in vaginal mesh cases, notes that Judge Joseph Goodwin on June 4 denied vaginal mesh manufacturer C.R. Bard’s motion for partial summary judgment of four plaintiffs’ punitive damages claims, according to court documents in MDL No. 2187, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia.

Judge Goodwin is the federal district court judge presiding over pretrial motions in the multidistrict litigations against several vaginal mesh manufacturers in West Virginia federal court: MDL No. 2187 (against C.R. Bard), MDL No. 2387 (against Coloplast), MDL No. 2326 (against Boston Scientific), MDL No. 2327 (against Ethicon) and MDL No. 2325 (against American Medical Systems). On Tuesday, June 4, he decided motions brought by both parties in the first four cases scheduled for trial in the MDL against C.R. Bard (MDL No. 2187).

Among the motions Judge Goodwin decided was C.R. Bard’s motion for summary judgment—i.e., motion for pre-trial judgment in Bard’s favor—on the first four cases’ punitive damages claims. Judge Goodwin denied that Bard motion for summary judgment on the unitive damages claims, according to court documents.

While the first four cases in the MDL against Bard won’t be going to trial until July, there has been a verdict in a vaginal mesh injury case brought against Bard in another jurisdiction. In July 2012, a California Superior Court jury awarded $5 million to Christine Scott for injuries caused by Bard’s Avaulta mesh, and $500,000 to her husband for his loss of consortium (Scott vs Kannappan, Cause Number S-1500-CV-266034).

The Rottenstein Law Group LLP urges those women who believe their vaginal mesh has hurt them to download a free informational brochure from the firm’s website to learn more about vaginal mesh side effects and eligibility for filing lawsuits.
