The medical device manufacturer included the settlement in an SEC filing in late April 2015.
According to an Indianapolis Star Tribune article about the settlement, Boston Scientific would still be involved in another 22,000 transvaginal mesh lawsuits if they were able to settle the 3,000 targeted in the settlement.
As a result of these tens of thousands of transvaginal mesh lawsuits, Boston Scientific has a $1.1 billion litigation reserve.
The CEO of Boston Scientific said in the Star Tribune article that the company is receptive to settling any transvaginal mesh lawsuits that can be proved to warrant a settlement.
