C.R. Bard Mesh Lawsuit Update: CEO Deposition Ruling

bardThe latest C.R. Bard mesh lawsuit update relates to the C.R. Bard multidistrict litigation (MDL) being heard in a federal court in West Virginia. According to a court document filed in late June 2014, the parties were in a disagreement over the deposition of C.R. Bard CEO John Weiland.

According to the court document, the defendants argued that the plaintiffs could gather pertinent information on C.R. Bard transvaginal mesh products without deposing Weiland. In making this argument, the defendants deemed the plaintiffs deposition request as unnecessarily disruptive to C.R. Bard business.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Cheryl A. Eifert ordered that plaintiffs shall be allowed to depose Weiland, but with limitations. Though the order disallows plaintiffs to question Weiland about technical aspects of C.R. Bard transvaginal mesh products, the plaintiffs have been permitted to ask Weiland about his involvement, as a C.R. Bard executive, in monitoring and addressing product quality and safety.

The defective medical device lawyers at Carey Danis & Lowe find that Judge Eifert’s ruling is a wise one.
