As we have previously advised, the vaginal mesh implant litigation continues to move forward nationwide. The next trial in the federal court litigation is scheduled for early December 2013, against C.R. Bard, Inc., one of the manufacturers of the mesh device. There are four other bellwether cases set for trial in 2014. A lawsuit involving Johnson & Johnson’s subsidiary Ethicon is also set for trial on February 10, 2014. Additionally, trials against Boston Scientific Corp. and American Medical Systems are set for March and April 2014. There are currently more than 30,000 pending lawsuits.
