Case Funding Firm reports that the judge overseeing approximately 33,000 consolidated mesh cases against Ethicon in multidistrict litigation had set a single trial date for November in which he consolidated 26 cases, which has now been altered and pushed back.
ATLANTA, July 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Legal-Bay LLC, The Lawsuit Settlement Funding Company, announced today that U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin in the Southern District of West Virginia (W.Va) pushed back and altered the single trial that was initially set to start in November. The first trial that was set included 26 claims from women, but new plaintiffs were added and now it involves 39 women, and the trial has been pushed back to December 7th, according to an article in Reuters. The alterations were made after data emerged that some of the women involved were implanted with multiple mesh devices.
There are currently over 70,000 cases relating to transvaginal mesh devices. Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon subsidiary currently faces about 33,000 mesh cases (MDL 2327). Due to the high volume of cases, U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin is overseeing seven different multidistrict litigations (MDL) for filed cases against several mesh manufacturers. Ethicon is just one of the mesh manufacturers involved, and they have lost four cases already.
Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay, commented on the recent announcement of the changes to the upcoming trial, “The 39 cases will represent a great opportunity to expedite the J&J and Ethicon portion of the transvaginal mesh litigation. To date, J&J has not fared well in the trials that they have defended, however, they continue to fight over 30,000 claims in which many women victims are waiting for resolution. Unfortunately, many of the women who have opted-in to other settlement cases have only walked away with $100K and are still waiting to receive their funds.”
