Mirena IUD lawsuits filed in New Jersey were recently consolidated into a multicounty litigation (MCL) in mid-May, according to court documents filed in the Superior Court of New Jersey in Bergen County. Judge Brian R. Martinotti will oversee the Mirena IUD proceedings. The case is In Re: Mirena Litigation Case No. 297.
Both parties are scheduled to meet for an initial conference on June 17, 2013. On the agenda for the conference is a discussion of how to coordinate with the Mirena IUD multidistrict litigation (MDL) No. 2434 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.
According to a Reuters report on the Mirena IUD MCL in New Jersey, there are approximately 113 cases that have been filed in the Bergen County court as of May 20, 2013.
Plaintiffs in the Mirena MCL and the Mirena MDL have filed their Mirena IUD lawsuits alleging that Bayer neglected to sufficiently warn users that the plastic contraceptive device could cause serious injury through uterus perforation and device migration.
