American Medical Systems settled nearly 100 transvaginal mesh lawsuits. According to a court document recently filed in the American Medical Systems multidistrict litigation (MDL), Judge Joseph R. Goodwin granted a Joint Motion to Dismiss Without Prejudice 95 cases.
The reason for dismissal is that American Medical Systems settled the cases.
One of the settled cases involves a plaintiff and her spouse; the plaintiff received an implant of the American Medical Systems MiniArc Sling in 2009.
The plaintiff’s claim cites negligence, design and manufacturing defects, failure to warn, fraudulent concealment, and punitive damages among a number of other allegations. Also, the plaintiff’s spouse, who is named as a plaintiff in lawsuit, cited loss of consortium.
As of April 24, 2015, the couple’s lawsuit is settled.
