Plaintiffs who have filed vaginal mesh lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson and Ethicon have firmly denied allegations of fraudulent vaginal mesh lawsuits. It was brought to the attention of Johnson & Johnson that women were being solicited over the phone to file transvaginal mesh lawsuits regardless of whether they had received an implant or not.
Johnson & Johnson mentioned these spam phone calls to the federal judge who is managing the Johnson & Johnson and Ethicon multidistrict litigation (MDL) in West Virginia. The mesh manufacturer requested that the court investigate the validity of each of the thousands of cases in the Ethicon MDL.
In response to the Johnson & Johnson request, the plaintiffs delivered a firm argument that the request lacks substance, since evidence of fraudulent filings are nonexistent.
The mesh manufacturer’s request can be considered a distraction from the matter at hand, in addition to an action that could have an unfortunate impact on the efficiency of the Ethicon MDL. In light of this, Carey Danis & Lowe is hopeful that the federal judge rules the Johnson & Johnson and Ethicon request insubstantial.
