In 2013, a jury verdict awarded the plaintiffs in a transvaginal mesh lawsuit being heard in a New Jersey court an $11 million compensatory package. The transvaginal mesh lawsuit involved Linda Gross, who received an implant of the Gynecare Prolift, a transvaginal mesh product manufactured by Ethicon, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson.
Following the announcement of the jury verdict, Ethicon sought to appeal the decision, arguing that the evidence presented during the trial did not warrant such a ruling.
In responding to Ethicon’s appeal, Judge Carol E. Higbee ruled against granting Ethicon a new trial or an amended ruling. Judge Higbee felt that evidence supported the jury verdict.
For Linda Gross and victims of transvaginal mesh, Judge Higbee’s ruling is a significant victory over a medical device manufacturer that appears to ignore patient health and safety. The defective medical device lawyers at Carey Danis & Lowe are encouraged by Judge Higbee’s decision.
