In an atypical statement of opinion, the federal judge who is overseeing the thousands of transvaginal mesh lawsuits in a West Virginia court advised mesh manufacturer, C.R. Bard, to consider a settlement. Such urging is infrequent from federal judges who are managing a multidistrict litigation (MDL).
However, after C.R. Bard has been dealt multi-million dollar loss upon multi-million dollar loss in 2014, U.S. District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin most likely began to sense that the C.R. Bard transvaginal mesh lawsuits were headed towards major losses for the manufacturer. In fact, Bloomberg published an article in which Judge Goodwin expressed his astonishment as to the lack of stockholder pressure being placed on C.R. Bard over the multi-million dollar losses.
Judge Goodwin was quoted as saying, “If I were a stockholder of any of these companies, I would be materially interested in the fact that there have been multiple million-dollar verdicts for individual plaintiffs.”
Perhaps Judge Goodwin’s insight on the possible outcome of the C.R. Bard transvaginal mesh lawsuits will compel C.R. Bard towards a settlement.
