The Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) released a document on October 15, 2014 that supplied an up-to-date pending lawsuit count for the Mirena multidistrict litigation (MDL) being heard in a federal court in New York. According to this document, there are currently 1,042 Mirena lawsuits pending before U.S. District Judge Cathy Seibel.
This update from the JPML makes it clear that the Mirena intrauterine device (IUD) continues to cause serious injuries to women.
Some known Mirena side effects include perforation, device migration, and infection.
Such injuries could have been prevented if product transparency and honesty were of any importance to the manufacturer of the Mirena. However, in this situation, Bayer misrepresented this contraceptive device in marketing campaigns by making claims about it being a safe and effective choice for women. As the Mirena lawsuits in New York indicate, these claims are false and deceptive.
