J&J Abandons Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit Fraud Investigation

vaginal_mesh_lawsuits_settlementsThe team of defective medical device lawyers at Carey Danis & Lowe recently reported on our law blog that Johnson & Johnson filed a motion in a West Virginia federal court requesting an investigation into the validity of vaginal mesh lawsuits. What influenced the mesh manufacturer’s decision was communication they had with women who claimed that phone solicitors called them about filing a vaginal mesh lawsuit.

According to Reuters, these women told Johnson & Johnson that the phone solicitors asked the women about whether or not they received a transvaginal mesh implant. Also, the phone solicitors mentioned how filing a transvaginal mesh lawsuit could result in $40,000 in compensation.

Johnson & Johnson asserted that these phone solicitors could have played a major role in the tens of thousands of lawsuits targeted at Johnson & Johnson and their subsidiary, Ethicon.

Even though Johnson & Johnson appeared resolute in investigating each case’s validity, this is no longer true. According to a court filing, Johnson & Johnson recently abandoned their fraud investigation. However, the motivations behind this abandonment are unknown.

Carey Danis & Lowe believes that Johnson & Johnson’s decision is a sound one. With the mesh manufacturer facing approximately 35,000 vaginal mesh lawsuits, sifting through each case to determine its validity would have a detrimental effect on an efficient legal process.
