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.

As more and more women continue to file transvaginal mesh lawsuits targeted at Johnson & Johnson and Ethicon over what they claim to be defective medical devices, the outcomes of the Huskey and Edwards cases have the potential to greatly impact transvaginal mesh cases across the country.
