A Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) recently ruled that all federal Mirena IUD lawsuits be consolidated into the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. The JPML ordered that Judge Cathy Seibel hear the Mirena MDL proceedings, according to a HarrisMartin Publishing article.
Plaintiffs who have cases in the Mirena IUD MDL No. 2434 filed their lawsuits against Bayer citing serious defects with the intrauterine contraceptive device. According to the plaintiffs, Mirena IUD side effects include the device becoming embedded in the uterus, and in some cases the device perforated the uterus.
Furthermore, there have also been reports of Mirena device migration, wherein the contraceptive device exits the uterus, and can migrate into the abdominal area, causing serious damage to organs.
