DePuy Pinnacle Hip Lawsuit Update: Court Discusses Scheduling of First Bellwether Trial
Federal DePuy Pinnacle hip lawsuits continue to move forward toward trial, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports.
New York NY (PRWEB) August 09, 2012
The DePuy Pinnacle hip lawsuits are progressing in the multidistrict litigation (“MDL”). A status conference was held today in In re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc. Pinnacle Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation (“MDL No. 2244”), currently underway in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas before the Honorable James E. Kinkeade. According to court documents, the Court discussed scheduling and issues relating to preserving important evidence in the hip implant cases. Over 1800 lawsuits have been filed in the Pinnacle hip MDL, alleging that the metal-on-metal hip implants were defectively designed.*
Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing clients who have been injured by dangerous drugs and defective medical devices, continues to file Pinnacle lawsuits on behalf of individuals who were allegedly injured by the metal-on-metal Pinnacle hip systems. Firm partner Jeffrey S. Grand serves on both the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee and the Discovery Committee in the federal DePuy Pinnacle litigation.
