Carey Danis & Lowe continues to follow the C.R. Bard multidistrict litigation (MDL) in a West Virginia federal court. In a court document filed in early December, Judge Joseph R. Goodwin, who is presiding over the C.R. Bard MDL, as well as the other five transvaginal mesh MDLs in the West Virginia federal court, announced that December’s status conference is canceled.
The court was scheduled to convene on December 5. With that meeting having been annulled, the next status conference in the C.R. Bard MDL will be on January 9, 2014.
In addition to the cancellation announcement, the court also filed a document relating to one particular case filed in the MDL that contains more than one plaintiff. The case is civil action no. 2:13-cv-29861.
Judge Goodwin ruled that in this particular case, because the plaintiffs have no relation to one another aside from their receiving a C.R. Bard transvaginal mesh implant, their cases must be separated, called a severance of actions. The plaintiffs who are not named first in the case will have their claims removed from the MDL, but they will have the opportunity to resubmit their claims as separate lawsuits to the C.R. Bard MDL.
The C.R. Bard MDL is being heard in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia. The MDL is known as In re: C.R. Bard, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation MDL no. 2187.
