First Vaginal Mesh Lawsuit Trial Is Underway
The jury selection is now finalized in the first Vaginal mesh lawsuit to go to trial. The next step will be lawyers for the victims and manufacturers will be presenting their witnesses in the heated vaginal mesh lawsuit. Keep in mind, this vaginal mesh trial was originally declared a mistrial in the the first attempt. Hopefully the second round will bring justice to the victim.
The second jury has been selected for the first vaginal mesh lawsuit against C.R. Bard . This vaginal mesh lawsuit(Cisson v. C.R. Bard Inc., Case No. 2:11-cv-00195) is the first of the bellwether cases to go to trial. There are four selected bellwether vaginal mesh lawsuits that will be heard back-to-back in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia by Judge Joseph Goodwin. In July 2013, the first attempt to trial ended with a mistrial when Judge Goodwin ruled that a witness’ testimony was an issue.
The outcome for this Bard lawsuit trial will be crucial in establishing future results for the thousands of other vaginal mesh victims. As of July 10, 2013, more than 4,100 vaginal mesh lawsuits had been filed against C.R. Bard in the U.S. District Court of West Virginia.
