A St. Louis law firm that represents clients nationally, Carey Danis & Lowe reports that the C.R. Bard multidistrict litigation (MDL), an MDL that is comprised of thousands of consolidated transvaginal mesh lawsuits, recently filed a new pretrial order (PTO) on August 18, 2014.* PTO #136 pertains to the pretrial discovery process, and more specifically to the management of certain pieces of physically sensitive evidence.

With one of their specialities lying in defective medical products and the affect these products have on consumers, Carey Danis & Lowe attorneys keep abreast of new pretrial orders, upcoming status conferences, and other important events of the C.R. Bard MDL in West Virginia.
Properly Handling Sensitive Evidence
According to PTO #136, both the plaintiffs and the defendants put forth a request of the court to draft official guidelines specifying the proper handling of sensitive evidence, especially biomaterial evidence, which in this particular case primarily means transvaginal mesh. In response, the court drafted the “Stipulated Evidence Preservation Protocol”.
The goal of the newly written protocol is that both parties be given equal access to the properly conserved evidence, which is referred to as “Material” and “Materials” in the PTO.
The defective medical device lawyers at Carey Danis & Lowe understand from years of experience in building cases for trial that evidence analysis is critical. In order to gather accurate information from available evidence, what becomes key is evidence conservation.
