According to court documents, on July 2, a Ruck County woman filed a lawsuit in Texas Northern District Court (3:2013cv02560), alleging significant mobility problems from her DePuy Pinnacle hip implants. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff claims that she was implanted with the DePuy Pinnacle Hip in both her hips and, after surgery, she experienced significant pain, which in combination with the mobility problems led to revision surgery in both hips.

On June 1, a Utah man filed a lawsuit in Texas Northern District Court (case no. 3:2013cv02064), alleging he suffered serious injuries from his DePuy Pinnacle hip implant. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff claims that he was implanted with the Pinnacle Hip System in 2007 and, shortly after, he began experiencing pain and complications which lead to revision surgery in 2013.

On May 24, US Judge J. Stephen Czuleger upheld the jury verdict on a lawsuit over DePuy’s ASR hip implants.
