C.R. Bard Appeal of $5.5 Million Verdict Denied

transvaginalmeshlawsuitThe California Supreme Court recently denied the appeal of a transvaginal mesh manufacturer, C.R. Bard, who sought to annul a 2012 jury verdict awarding $5.5 million to the plaintiff in the transvaginal mesh lawsuit. Upon receiving the jury’s verdict, C.R. Bard declared that they planned to appeal the decision.

In a Bloomberg report from July 2012, a C.R. Bard representative named Scott Lowry stated that the “the complications suffered by the plaintiff…are not the fault” of C.R. Bard.

The plaintiff in the case, Christine Scott, received an implant of the C.R. Bard Avaulta Plus. Scott experienced mesh erosion, which in turn resulted in stress urinary incontinence (SUI) and pelvic pain, according to a Bloomberg report.

The Scott case was the first transvaginal mesh lawsuit to go to trial in the U.S., and thus, it is meaningful whether the case rests in favor of the plaintiff or defendant. C.R. Bard may be out of options for overturning the Scott verdict, and with increasing pressure to settle transvaginal mesh lawsuits, the mesh manufacturer may be moved to let the verdict rest.
