US judge rules for company in W.Va. mesh lawsuit
Question of the Day
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A federal judge has ruled in favor of a manufacturer in a lawsuit brought by a Texas woman who claimed her pelvic pain was caused by implanted surgical mesh.
The 2012 lawsuit alleged that the pelvic mesh has high rates of failure and can shrink, degrade or break off in the body.
The lawsuit was transferred to West Virginia as part of a federal, multidistrict litigation. Goodwin selected it and several others from thousands of lawsuits, to serve as bellwether cases.
In August, a federal jury in Charleston, W. Va., awarded a Georgia woman $2 million in damages in her lawsuit against medical device maker C.R. Bard. That case was the first to go to trial. Later that month, another woman reached an undisclosed settlement against C.R. Bard in a separate lawsuit.
