Carey Danis & Lowe transvaginal mesh lawyers are currently following the Ethicon multidistrict litigation (MDL) in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia. As a national law firm representing individuals who claim to have been injured through the use of vaginal mesh products, such as the Ethicon Gynecare Prolift, Carey Danis & Lowe has noticed significant developments unfolding in the Ethicon MDL, whose progress is detailed in a court document, pretrial order number 52.*

According to this court document, bellwether presentations have been rescheduled from July 18, 2013 to July 25, 2013.

During the bellwether presentations, the plaintiffs’ legal counsel will present cases to presiding U.S. District Judge Joseph R. Goodwin. Cases selected for bellwether presentations are usually representative of the whole, which in this case, includes the more than 7,000 cases in the Ethicon MDL and the thousands of cases consolidated into the four other vaginal mesh MDLs being heard in West Virginia, according to Carey Danis & Lowe transvaginal mesh lawyers.
