The Ethicon multidistrict litigation (MDL) in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia is preparing for a second round of bellwether trials, which are due to begin in August 2014. According to a pre-trial order filed by the court managing the Ethicon MDL, the next round of bellwether trials involve two plaintiffs, Jo Huskey and Tonya Edwards.
Huskey’s case is scheduled to be heard first on August 25.
