DePuy ASR hip lawsuits in the federal consolidated action, In re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. ASR Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation (“MDL No. 2197”), continue to proceed with several depositions of DePuy executives scheduled to take place in the next three months. On August 22, 2012, eight depositions were noticed in the federal DePuy ASR hip litigation, which is pending before the Honorable David A. Katz in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.
Among those slated to be deposed are David Floyd, former U.S. and Worldwide President of DePuy Orthopaedics at the time the August 2010 ASR hip recall was issued, and Andrew Ekdahl, President of DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. Floyd resigned as President of DePuy in March 2011. Ekdahl was named president in June 2011. It is expected that these depositions will provide additional insight into the August 2010 ASR hip recall.
