The federal judge who is overseeing the pretrial proceedings in the 7 transvaginal mesh multidistrict litigations (MDLs) urged the defendants in each of the MDLs to settle the tens of thousands of vaginal mesh lawsuits that they face. U.S. District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin expressed his belief that without a transvaginal mesh settlement, decades would pass before finally resolving these cases.
According to a Reuters report, Judge Goodwin pointed to the American Medical Systems settlement as a praiseworthy example of what should be done.
Though Judge Goodwin has been pushing for settlement, a few of the vaginal mesh makers, among them C.R. Bard, Ethicon, and Boston Scientific, have been averse to the judge’s recommendation, as they continue to adhere to the belief that their vaginal mesh products are not defective. Still, the increasing amount of pressure that these vaginal mesh makers face may play a major role in ultimately influencing the manufacturers to work out a settlement.
