The C.R. Bard multidistrict litigation (MDL) in West Virginia is seeking to gather a precise enumeration of transvaginal mesh lawsuits targeted against mesh manufacturer C.R. Bard. According to a pretrial order filed on December 31, 2013, the presiding judge, U.S. District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin, believes that conducting a census of all lawsuits, either those pending in the C.R. Bard MDL or those cases yet to be filed, will lead to a more efficient legal process.
Information on each case, whether filed or yet to be filed, will be collected via a spreadsheet, and submitted to the court by mid-January 2014. The spreadsheet requires plaintiffs to provide data on implanted transvaginal mesh products, the removal of mesh products, and dates of surgical operations.
The St. Louis class action attorneys at Carey Danis & Lowe are optimistic about the future of the C.R. Bard MDL in light of this pretrial order. The census is an indicator that the court is dedicated to efficiency, which works in the favor of all parties involved, most especially victims of defective mesh products.
