The Superior Court of New Jersey in Bergen county, a court that is hearing a consolidation of Mirena lawsuits, recently filed a new case management order on November 20, 2013. The court document supplies details on upcoming court meetings as well as the court’s plan to create a deposition protocol.
The newest case management order in the Mirena multicounty litigation (MCL) provides information on upcoming case management conferences, including the next meeting scheduled for January 14, 2014. The court has scheduled dates for future case management conferences through June 2014.
As the Mirena MCL in New Jersey is currently in pre-trial proceedings, both parties are just beginning the process of planning depositions. According to the case management order, both parties, along with presiding Judge Brian Martinotti, are working on a deposition protocol. Under such protocol as it is currently written, those depositions of Bayer representatives will be capped at two days.
Many women have faulted the Mirena intrauterine device (IUD) for causing their severe injuries. Some of the most common Mirena injuries include uterine wall or cervix perforation, device migration, pelvic inflammatory disease, and pelvic pain. In addition, the Mirena IUD has also been known to embed in the uterine wall, causing serious internal damage in some cases.
