As the parties involved in the five vaginal mesh multidistrict litigation (MDL) cases recently met about removing certain entities from plaintiffs’ cases, the court has followed through on the name removal agreement with its revised complaint forms. The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia recently filed a revised short form complaint and an amended short form complaint for plaintiffs who are filing a new vaginal mesh lawsuit or updating their case in their respective MDL.
The update to complaint forms is detailed in pretrial order number fifty. According to Carey Danis & Lowe vaginal mesh lawyers, modifying the complaint forms to reflect the removal of Endo and Coloplast entities will significantly assist plaintiffs who are currently filing a vaginal mesh lawsuit against one of the five medical device manufacturers. The update ensures that plaintiffs and their legal counsel will use the correct nomenclature when referencing a manufacturer in future complaint forms, and thus, lead to a more efficient legal process.
The five West Virginia transvaginal mesh MDLs are being presided over by U.S. District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin. The cases are In Re: Ethicon, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation MDL No. 2327; In Re: C. R. Bard, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation MDL No. 2187; In Re: American Medical Systems, Inc., Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation MDL No. 2325; In Re: Boston Scientific Corp. Pelvic Repair System Products Liability Litigation MDL No. 2326; and In Re: Coloplast Corp. Pelvic Support Systems Products Liability Litigation MDL No. 2387.
